Man shot by FBI agent released from hospital

The unarmed Pasadena man shot in the face March 1 by an FBI agent searching for a bank robbery suspect was released from Maryland Shock Trauma Center, hospital officials said yesterday.

Joseph C. Schultz, 20, is expected to undergo a series of reconstructive surgeries to repair damage to his right cheek and jaw, which were shattered by a bullet from an FBI agent's M-4 rifle during a mistaken traffic stop in Anne Arundel County. The bullet remains lodged in the left side of Schultz's face.

AFL-CIO bars union from vying with AFSCME

An internal panel of the AFL-CIO has ruled that the American Federation of Teachers can't compete with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees in union elections at the state's public universities.

AFT had been vying with AFSCME for the votes of professional, nonfaculty employees under a new state law allowing bargaining by nonfaculty at the state's public campuses. But the internal board found that the employees were a more natural fit with AFSCME.

More than 4,000 service and office workers have voted to be represented by AFSCME.

Washington landlord sentenced in lead case

GREENBELT - A federal judge sentenced a Washington landlord yesterday to two years in prison for concealing from federal investigators that he had failed to warn his tenants about potential lead paint hazards.

The case against David D. Nuyen, 65, of Silver Spring marked the first criminal prosecution in the country involving warnings required of landlords under the Lead Hazard Reduction Act of 1992.

Nuyen admitted that he failed to give tenants notice of actual and potential lead hazards before they signed leases, as the law requires, and then submitted false documents to U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development officials.
