Karl Thompson appeal argued in court

Attorneys for imprisoned former Spokane police Officer Karl Thompson argued Monday that prosecutors did not turn over important evidence before trial. Defense attorney Carl Oreskovich told the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Seattle that the evidence could have been used to attack conclusions drawn by use-of-force witnesses in the 2006 death of Otto Zehm.

Rock Creek decision upheld

Building a mine beneath Montana’s Cabinet Mountain Wilderness won’t imperil the region’s threatened grizzly bears, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday. The San Francisco-based court said that the grizzlies will be protected through an extensive mitigation plan required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The decision, which upholds a Montana judge’s earlier ruling, opens the door for the first development phase of the Rock Creek silver-copper mine to begin as early as 2013.
