Lawyer says Michigan cancer doc can't post $9M bond

Wednesday, 14 August 2013 17:23 Published in National News

DETROIT (AP) - The lawyer for a Detroit-area cancer specialist accused of intentionally misdiagnosing patients says his client cannot post a $9 million bond.

Christopher Andreoff made the comment Wednesday, a day after a federal judge ordered bond for Dr. Farid Fata be increased from $170,000.

Prosecutors asked for the higher bond for fear the 48-year-old Fata would flee the country. They say FBI tracing shows Fata and his wife have $9 million in liquid assets.

A federal grand jury indicted Fata on Wednesday on health care fraud. The government says Fata ripped off Medicare by giving chemotherapy to patients who didn't need it and diagnosing cancer when it wasn't apparent.

Andreoff says his client is innocent. Fata is being held in the Wayne County jail pending a Tuesday preliminary examination.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island highway mural created by a renowned children's author and illustrator as part of a program to reduce vandalism has been defaced by graffiti.

The mural along Interstate 95 in Providence was designed by David Macaulay and was completed in June. It's one of two highway murals designed by Macaulay, who attended the Rhode Island School of Design.

Red graffiti covers the length of the mural.

State Department of Transportation spokeswoman Rose Amoros says crews will work through Wednesday to clean it. She says once they remove the paint they'll restore the mural. She calls the vandalism disheartening.

Macaulay has won awards including the Caldecott Medal for children's books. Among his best-known books is "The Way Things Work," an amusing look at the inner workings of everything from cars to computers.

California court refuses to stop gay marriages

Wednesday, 14 August 2013 17:20 Published in National News

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The California Supreme Court has refused to stop gay marriages in the state.

In a brief ruling Wednesday, the high court tossed out a legal challenge by supporters of Proposition 8, the ballot measure passed by voters that banned same-sex marriages in California.

A U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June left in place a trial judge's order striking down the ballot measure as unconstitutional. On June 28, Gov. Jerry Brown ordered county clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Prop 8 supporters had asked the state Supreme Court to stop the weddings, arguing that the federal court action applied narrowly and only to the two couples who filed the federal lawsuit challenging the ban.

With little comment, a unanimous state Supreme Court allowed gay marriages to continue.
