If you just bought a 2019 Subaru Ascent, the brand’s new three-row SUV, the company may replace it with another brand-new car because of an unusual recall for a flaw that dealers can’t repair. Subaru is recalling 293 vehicles in the U.S. because they’re missing spot welds in the B-pillar (that’s the vertical structural element behind the front door, where it latches). Since local dealers aren’t equipped with or trained to use welding robots, all of the affected cars must be returned to Subaru and crushed.

A judge's decision to allow the release of an extended family accused of child abuse at a ramshackle desert compound in New Mexico prompted a political uproar Tuesday by prominent Republican lawmakers. The controversy was stoked even further when court officials condemned threats of violence made against the judge who issued the ruling and evacuated several administrative court offices as a precaution.

On the final day of arguments in Paul Manafort’s trial, Judge T.S. Ellis referenced media reports about the instances of him yelling at prosecutors throughout the case. “Let’s keep it that way, Your Honor,” Manafort’s defense attorney Kevin Downing joked. Over the past 11 days, the government called 27 witnesses and admitted more than 300 documents into evidence in an effort to prove that Manafort, a longtime political operative and President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, committed tax and bank fraud, hiding millions of dollars in overseas accounts and providing false information to banks when he applied for loans.
