Judge rejects Missouri governor's bid to dismiss criminal caseBy Sue Britt ST. LOUIS (Reuters) - A St. Louis judge on Thursday rejected a bid to dismiss a criminal invasion of privacy charge against Missouri Governor Eric Greitens stemming from a sex scandal involving an extramarital affair. Judge Rex Burlison ruled against the Republican governor's legal team, which filed a motion last week accusing Kim Gardner, the Democratic circuit attorney for the city of St. Louis, of prosecutorial misconduct, saying she tried to conceal video evidence favorable to the governor and his assertions that the affair was entirely consensual. ...

Puerto Rico restores power to over 70 perecnt of customers after blackoutPuerto Rico's power company said it had restored power to over 1.1 million homes and businesses by Thursday morning after a transmission line failure cut service to almost all of the island's 3.4 million residents the day before.

The power line failure in southern Puerto Rico was the latest in a string of operational and political headaches for the bankrupt, storm-ravaged power utility.

Black men arrested at Starbucks want change in U.S. racial attitudesTwo black men who were arrested at a Starbucks Corp cafe in Philadelphia while waiting for a friend said on Thursday they hoped the widely publicized incident would lead to changes in U.S. racial attitudes. The men, Donte Robinson and Rashon Nelson, said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" that they wanted to use their arrests a week ago to ensure no one else would undergo a similar experience.

FAA to order inspections of jet engines after Southwest blast -

FAA to order inspections of jet engines after Southwest blastThe U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said it will order inspection of about 220 aircraft engines as investigators have found that a broken fan blade touched off an engine explosion this week on a Southwest flight, killing a passenger.

Airlines said that because fan blades may have been repaired and moved to other engines, the order would affect far more than 220 of the CFM56-7Bs, which are made by a partnership of France's Safran and General Electric .

Deadly South Carolina prison riot exposes staffing shortage -

Deadly South Carolina prison riot exposes staffing shortageBy Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A gang-related melee at a South Carolina prison that ended with seven dead and 17 injured, the deadliest U.S. prison riot in a quarter century, exposed the vulnerability of an understaffed system. Forty-four guards were on duty overseeing 1,583 inmates at Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, South Carolina, when the violence broke out, and it took eight hours to put an end to the riot early on Monday. Across the country, cuts to state budgets have left state prison systems understaffed, a reality that prison officials and law enforcement experts say increases the risk of being unable to contain any outbreaks of violence quickly.
