Police say six people were arrested Wednesday March 26, after officers served more than two dozen search warrants after a months-long investigation into baggage theft at Los Angeles International Airport.

A federal appeals court on Thursday March 27, 2014, upheld Texas' tough new abortion restrictions that shuttered many of the abortions clinics in the state. A panel of judges at the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court judge who said the rules violate the U.S. Constitution and served no medical purpose. In its opinion, the appeals court said the law "on its face does not impose an undue burden on the life and health of a woman."
