  • Diners leave without paying hefty bill

    Proprietor Marc Kenly was disappointed by the action but said while it was not a huge amount, it was unfair to make future patrons foot their bill. Mr Kenly said the woman left with the baby, which staff thought nothing of because she may have gone to get something for the child from the car, which often happened. Mr Kenly said his ultimate goal was to encourage the patrons to return and pay their outstanding bill.

  • Robin Williams restricted exploitation of his image for 25 years after death

    Unfortunately, the dispute overshadows one of the more innovative aspects of Robin Williams’ estate planning, which just might become a model for other celebrities preparing for their demise. After all, one thing his wife Susan and children Zachary, Zelda andCody won’t be discussing in court is intangible property like the late actor’s right of publicity. According to a review of the Robin Williams Trust — filed as an exhibit last Wednesday — Williams bequeathed rights to his name, signature, photograph and likeness to the Windfall Foundation, a charitable organization set up by Williams’ legal reps at the law firm of Manatt, Phelps.

  • Coroner gives findings on drownings

    A local council should decide whether two South Australian beaches should be closed, says a coroner who investigated three drownings in the area. Deputy Coroner Anthony Schapel said he had considered, then rejected, whether to recommend closing beaches west of The Bluff at Encounter Bay, or introducing swimming ban laws at Petrel Cove and Depledge beaches. "This is clearly a matter that the Council has to consider and decide for itself," he said on Thursday in his findings into the inquests of three men who drowned off the Fleurieu Peninsula in the past three years.

  • Alps crash: Bodies recovered, but families must wait months

    SEYNE-LES-ALPES, France (AP) -- Just over a week after a Germanwings plane crashed into the French Alps, investigators have finished retrieving human remains from the crash site and are now trying to match them with DNA profiles from the 150 people killed — an arduous task that could leave families waiting for months. Francois Daoust, head of the France's IRCGN national criminal laboratory in Pontoise outside Paris, said that as of Monday afternoon the forensic teams on the site and in Paris had isolated 78 distinct DNA profiles from the hundreds of samples recovered at the site — leaving nearly as many unaccounted for. Meanwhile, they had only received complete DNA profiles for about 60 victims from their relatives because it takes time to gather samples from families still reeling from their loss.
