A ruling by a federal judge in a lawsuit filed by federal employees over the government shutdown last fall has given the workers hope that they could soon be eligible for a payout. U.S. Court of Federal Claims Chief Judge Patricia Campbell-Smith declined to dismiss the lawsuit brought by some 2,000 workers who were deemed essential during the during the 16-day shutdown. The plaintiffs worked through the shutdown but didn't get paid on time for their labor. Campbell-Smith wrote in an opinion that the federal government violated the Fair Labor Standards Act, but she didn't go as far as saying that the government needed to pay the plaintiffs.

A loophole in Maryland gun-permit laws that allowed some convicted criminals to buy weapons was closed yesterday by the attorney general, who ordered the state police to apply both federal and state regulations in screening applications for firearms purchases.The loophole was created in April when a Circuit Court judge ruled that the state police could not go beyond the scope of Maryland law in rejecting gun-purchase applications. The state law prohibits gun purchases by people convicted of crimes ranging from arson to murder, but does not cover as broad a spectrum of offenses as the federal statute.

The FBI had previously been warned by the Russian government that the 26-year-old Boston bombing terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev was being radicalized ("Bombing suspect faces U.S. charges," April 23). The FBI interviewed him and then just opened the door and said have a good day. No further attention was given him by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Why? When he left the United States and went to Russia in 2012 for six months, there was no questioning of him by the FBI at his return.

Five Baltimore County police officers were suspended yesterday and federal authorities were seeking to question about 40 Baltimore officers as a long-simmering investigation of police moonlighting accelerated, police and union sources say. FBI agents are believed to be asking officers whether they were paid for work they never performed at Staples office supply stores, the sources said. Agents are also looking into whether the officers may have been double-dipping - working security at Staples stores during the past few years while on duty as police, sources said.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has written Judiciary Committee bTC Chairman Orrin Hatch calling for hearings "on the issue of terrorism." Good idea. But in his request, he also said, "As a part of the Judiciary Committee's agenda, I believe it would be most appropriate for the panel to examine the Waco incident." Maybe or maybe not a good idea.The "incident" referred to was the deadly, tragic federal assault on the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, in 1993. That event, in which 79 cultists died in the fire that resulted from the final attack, has become a great defining event -- and threat -- for many anti-government Americans.

Two small packages, addressed to Gov. Martin O'Malley and another state official, ignited 20 minutes apart in government buildings in Annapolis and Hanover Thursday, launching a wave of concern throughout the state. The only injuries reported were to the fingers of a state mailroom worker, who refused treatment — yet federal and state officials locked down state government mailrooms indefinitely and responded with a massive public safety effort that captured the focus of the cable news networks.

Employees at a privately run Baltimore halfway house have allowed federal defendants to leave the secured facility at night in violation of court-ordered restrictions. Officials at the nonprofit Volunteers of America suspect that two employees - who have subsequently been fired - accepted bribes in exchange for letting the defendants out. But despite questions about the integrity of the program, judges continue to send defendants there because there are few other places in Maryland to house minimum-security defendants awaiting federal trials.

In recent days a lot of ink and air time have been devoted to denouncing Garry Trudeau's current ''Doonesbury'' episode. Perhaps the harshest words came from Newsweek's Jonathan Alter, who opined that Mr. Trudeau ''found himself cast in the unlikely mold of Alan Simpson at the Anita Hill hearings -- spreading personal innuendo.''Comparing a man to the junior senator from Wyoming is ultimate nastiness.The mainstream media heavies cluck that Mr. Trudeau is publicizing a discredited charge that Vice President Quayle purchased cocaine a decade ago. But the media have managed to miss a key point.
