Now nearly 10,000 current and retired soldiers in The Golden State have been ordered to repay all or some of the bonuses they received to incentivize their return to war.

Chris Christie knew about the George Washington Bridge lane closings were raised again Monday as a former ally testified she told him a Democratic mayor had expressed concern the resulting traffic jams in his city were political retribution.

Lyle Denniston looks at three Supreme Court cases it accepted right before Justice Scalia’s death – and why they haven’t gotten a court date yet. Three times in the Supreme Court’s current term, the Justices and their staffs have put together schedules for hearings, and three times they have intentionally chosen to bypass three of the cases waiting the longest to be argued. The likely reason: the Justices are inclined to think that those cases would only wind up in 4-to-4 splits, settling nothing. So they remain in a scheduling limbo. The court’s release on Friday of the schedule for the term’s third round of hearings – the two-week session that begins on November 28 — was the latest sign that the vacancy left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February is interfering with the court’s normal operations. Although the schedule had four one-hour spots that were open, none got filled, and most glaringly omitted were the three cases that the court had agreed on January 15 that it would decide.

Although the Tesla (TSLA) brand did not fare so well in Consumer Reports' most recent annual reliability survey, there was one bright spot: the Model S. Tesla's low overall ranking owed a lot to issues with its Model X crossover , such as problems with its falcon-wing doors. Consumer Reports had given the Model S high scores on metrics such as road tests and performance, but had held back a recommendation due to reliability concerns, said Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports' director of automotive testing, in an interview with CNBC.

By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - AT&T Inc may not have to seek approval from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission for the biggest acquisition announced this year by selling the one television station that Time Warner Inc owns: WPCH-TV in Atlanta. The FCC has broad leeway to block a merger that it deems not to be in the "public interest," while the U.S. Justice Department mainly examines a deal to see whether it breaks antitrust rules by reducing competition. If Time Warner divests its only FCC-regulated broadcast station, that could eliminate a primary reason for the U.S. telecoms regulator to review the takeover, a government official with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.
