    Austrian hedge fund manager Wolfgang Floettl waits in a courtroom before the beginning of a rerun of BAWAG trial in Vienna April 25, 2012. Bankers, led by former Chief Executive of Austrian BAWAG P.S.K. bank Helmut Elsner are accused of committing or aiding breach of trust and false accounting, by gambling away at least 1.4 billion euros ($2.08 billion) in one of the world's biggest speculative failures. The first instance judgment in July 2008, spoken by Judge Claudia Bandion-Ortner had been cancelled in large parts because of procedural irregularities by the supreme court.

Court documents show Brooke Mueller appeared in district court in Aspen Monday, March 19, 2012 to plead guilty to felony drug possession of four grams or less. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop the more serious possession with intent to distribute charge, as well as a misdemeanor third-degree assault charge. Sentencing is scheduled for May 7.
