    A Porsche Boxter car is pictured on an assembly line on the first day of its official production at the Volkswagen plant in Osnabrueck September 19, 2012. A German regional court stopped two investor lawsuits against Porsche SE, sending a discouraging signal to claimants still seeking just over four billion euros ($5.2 billion) in damages in Germany. Some German and U.S. investors say that throughout 2008 Porsche camouflaged its plans to acquire VW and instead secretly piled up its holding. In March 2008, the sportscar maker dismissed as "speculation" talk that it intended to take over the much-bigger VW, which builds more cars in a week than Porsche does in a year. Seven months later, Porsche said it controlled 42.6 percent of VW's common shares and held options for another 31.5 percent of the stock it had not disclosed previously. Porsche's statement caused VW shares to surge to 1,005 euros within days. REUTERS/Fabian Bimmer

The NFL moved Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012 to try to shut down lawsuits filed by thousands of former players who say they suffered or fear suffering permanent brain injuries from football-related concussions, calling the issue a "labor dispute" that should be resolved not by courts but by terms of the collective bargaining agreement.

As Penn State tries to move past the scandal after Sandusky’s trial, the devastating Freeh Report and unprecedented NCAA penalties, Title IX remains a potential long-term legal problem. The reason: Not only have Title IX lawsuits produced some of the most expensive judgments against universities in recent years, but the law allows for the possibility, however unlikely, that a university’s access to all federal dollars could be cut off.

A Cairo court on Thursday ordered the chief editor of an Egyptian newspaper detained pending trial on charges of insulting the country’s president and “spreading lies.” The case against Afifi of the privately-owned el-Dustour daily is one of several lawsuits brought mainly by Egypt’s Islamists against journalists, accusing them of inflammatory coverage and inciting the public against the Muslim Brotherhood, the country’s largest political group.

On Monday, July 23, 2012, a Chicago City Council committee signed off on settlements in two lawsuits filed by men who allege they were victims of police torture during the tenure of former Chicago Police Cmdr. Jon Burge. The settlements totaling $7.17 million still need the full City Council's approval. More than $5 million would go to Tillman, who says officers tortured him for four days until he confessed to murder. (AP Photo/Chicago Sun-Times, John H. White, File) CHICAGO LOCALS OUT, MAGS OUT
