In a California Supreme Court ruling yesterday, a judge has made it harder for a divorced, non-custodial parent to block their ex from moving away with the kids. These are now called "move-away" parents, which sounds like something an 8-year-old might have come up with. Will "custodial" be traded for "sleep-over" next?

Yesterday port traffic slowed down as security guards walked out to protest a mass firing, the Long Beach Press Telegram reports.

The Ninth Circuit court (which covers California and the west) was the second circuit court to find the Federal "partial-birth abortion" law unconstitutional earlier this week. Hours later, the circuit court for NY came to the same conclusion. The Ninth Circuit affirmed a lower judge's ruling, which sides with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The circuit courts are the last stop before the US Supreme Court; we hope that the Feds don't appeal.
