Federal jury hangs on Pittsburgh man's wrongful arrest lawsuit

Attorneys for an African American Pittsburgh man who was arrested and beaten by three white police officers in January 2010 say their client will continue his legal battle after a federal court jury failed to come to a verdict on allegations of false arrest and excessive force against the officers. That means that a future jury will re-hear the case against the officers, who allegedly arrested the plaintiff for lurking without identifying themselves, hit him on the head and choked him while he was handcuffed.

Parent's complaint leads to criminal charges against church

The leaders of a Pennsylvania church are facing legal trouble after an event in March where teenage parishioners were "kidnapped" as part of a lesson about the possible experiences of missionary work. Perhaps ironically, the pastor of the church says the exercise was meant to simulate "the persecuted church" that he said goes on in other countries.
