It’s bad enough when a bedmate snores, but hearing the neighbors snore is grounds for a lawsuit. When people moved into the new Toy Warehouse lofts in Los Angeles in 2001, they could hear every little noise their neighbors made — even in the bathroom — thanks to the builder omitting the planned soundproofing. After recovering $1.32 million for their troubles, the homeowners are sleeping more soundly … In police searches, the parked car’s fair game, the U.S. Supreme Court said Monday. Ruling 7-2 in Thornton v. United States, the high court found that officers can search a car when arresting someone near it, not just in it. The decision doesn’t apply to an abandoned vehicle or one with no recent occupant in sight … A law school trades provisional accreditation for another shot at the real deal: Western State University College of Law, alma mater of a quarter of Orange County, Calif., judges and court commissioners, will drop its suit against the ABA in exchange for a fast-tracked reconsideration … The U.N. Security Council has delayed taking up a draft resolution shielding U.S. peacekeepers from prosecution by a new global criminal court. The vote, which the United States hoped would be completed by last week at the latest, is deferred indefinitely … Remember when windows weren’t “Windows,” per se? San Diego-based Lindows, which sells a Linux operating system for PCs, says there was such a time, and the 9th Circuit’s refusal to review a pretrial ruling on the matter means a jury pondering the validity of Microsoft’s Windows trademark may only consider the period prior to the now-dominant product’s 1985 release. The way is now clear for trial in U.S. District Court in Seattle later this year. –Lydia Markoff
