      Credit Suisse admits spying on second executive

      Credit Suisse on Monday admitted to snooping on another of the bank's former executives, deepening a spying scandal at the Swiss group, which is already under investigation for putting its ex-wealth management chief under surveillance.

      Switzerland’s second-largest bank blamed former chief operating officer Pierre-Olivier Bouee for hiring detectives in February to track former HR head Peter Goerke. They described a rogue operation in which all executives and directors, including Chief Executive Officer Tidjane Thiam, were kept in the dark about what was going on.

      Credit Suisse had earlier blamed Bouee for a similar incident involving former wealth management boss Iqbal Khan and had also cleared Thiam of any role in it. At the time, Thiam characterized it as ...

      Opinion: Gun Control Will Protect Our Right to Bear Arms

      Ten years ago this month, 13 Americans died and more than 30 were wounded when one of our own opened fire at Fort Hood.

      Speculation immediately began as to then-U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan's motive for attacking the military base in Texas. At his trial, Hasan said believed he was defending the lives of the Taliban leadership in Afghanistan. It also came to light that he had sought mental health treatment upon becoming distressed as an Army psychiatrist listening to the accounts of service in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    5. Supreme Court allows Sandy Hook families to sue Remington

      Supreme Court allows Sandy Hook families to sue Remington

      The Supreme Court rules it will not stop the lawsuit by Sandy Hook victims' families against Remington Arms Co., the manufacturer of the semi-automatic rifle used in the 2012 shooting at an elementary school.

      The Court decided not to take up an appeal by Remington. It represents a blow to the gun industry - depending on the outcome of the case - which could open the door to gun violence victims' families suing gun manufacturers for damages.
      The Sandy Hook victims' families are "grateful" for the Supreme Court's decision, attorneys for the families said in a statement. They called Remington's appeal the company's "latest attempt to avoid accountability.
      A 2005 federal law protects many gun manufacturers from wrongful death ...

      Frustrated Democratic Governors Turn to Executive Orders

      Wisconsin’s Democratic Gov. Tony Evers tried for months to get the Republican-controlled Legislature to take up a pair of gun control bills, holding news conferences and touting polls showing strong public support. When Republicans wouldn’t budge, Evers turned up the heat by using an executive order — his 54th in less than a year — to call a special session on the issue.

      “We need an up-or-down vote,” Evers said. “We have to get this done, folks.”
