A lesbian couple married in Massachusetts filed a lawsuit this week looking for recognition of their marriage in Puerto Rico. Ada Conde and Ivonne Alvarez married in Massachusetts in 2004. Because Puerto Rico signed a law in 1999 that defined marriage as between a man and a woman, the couple's union is not recognized in the commonwealth. "We wish to enjoy the same social privileges and contractual rights that are conferred by the Commonwealth on individuals in opposite-sex marriages," Conde and Alvarez write in the lawsuit .  In the lawsuit, Conde writes that Puerto Rico's lack of recognition for her marriage prevented Alvarez from making medical decisions during Conde's daughter's heart surgery.

A unanimous Supreme Court has cleared the way for the pro-choice movement and abortion clinics to fight back against the most aggressive of organized protesters by invoking a section of the 1970 anti-organized crime law -- so-called RICO, for "racketeer influenced corrupt organizations." This is a tough law and could be as effective against extremist anti-abortion groups as it has been against the Mafia and other entities that commit ordinary criminal code violations while conspiring to achieve their goals.

The Peruvian charcoal-broiled chicken trend is wending its way from Washington to Baltimore. Chicken Rico, recently expanded from three D.C.-area locations to a fourth in Highlandtown, sets a high standard for the genre. Chicken Rico has a sunny atmosphere, enhanced by tapestries depicting life and landscapes in Peru, as well as traditional Peruvian flutes arranged on the wall. Artificial flowers decorate each table and music in Spanish blares from the speakers. Inca Kola shares space with Pepsi in the soda case.

An excerpt from a Monday San Jose Mercury News editorial:CONGRESS may have had "The Godfather" in mind when it wrote a landmark anti-racketeering law. But last week, a jury in Chicago applied the statute to punish violent protesters, not mobsters.In this instance, the jury's finding and the fine appeared warranted. But Congress should watch the expanded use of the law, known as RICO, and rewrite it if necessary. There is a danger that the government and the targets of protest could use RICO to limit free speech.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to decide whether individuals or firms claiming harm from stock fraud may sue for triple damages under federal racketeering law, even if they could not sue under securities laws.At issue in a case from California is the scope of the right to sue under the Racketeer Influenced, Corrupt Organizations Act of 1970 for securities fraud that allegedly resulted from commercial racketeering. The "RICO" law has been interpreted by the courts to apply to many forms of commercial fraud that involve violations of state or federal law.Last August, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco decided that as long as an individual or firm could show that it had been injured by stock fraud, the right to sue for damages -- which are tripled under the RICO law -- is assured.

HMOs have been called lots of unflattering names, but now there's a new one: racketeer. Circumscribed in their ability to win suits against HMOs under malpractice and other laws which normally apply in health cases, aggressive plaintiffs' lawyers have turned to the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Over the past year or so, RICO suits have been filed against the nation's largest HMOs. The latest to face a RICO complaint is Columbia-based Magellan Health Services Inc., which functions as an HMO for mental health benefits.

WASHINGTON -- The federal anti-racketeering law against business misconduct, allowing tripled damages as its most costly remedy, cannot be used against lawyers, accountants and other outside professionals who give bad advice to companies that engage in fraud, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 yesterday.An outside adviser, the court declared, is covered by the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) of 1970 only if that adviser had a role in managing the company or joined directly in the company's affairs.

A federal judge in Chicago dismissed Hollinger International's $1.25 billion lawsuit against ousted chief executive Conrad Black yesterday - but said many of the claims can be refiled in a state court. Hollinger International said it intends to press its claims "aggressively," and may appeal the ruling, but it didn't provide details. Although it is still free to pursue the case, the company has clearly suffered a setback. For one thing, yesterday's ruling by U.S. District Judge Blanche M. Manning means that Hollinger, a full nine months after it went to court, has been pushed back to square one in its legal pursuit of Black.

With glamorous resorts, ramped-up cuisine and high adventure, this no-passport-needed Caribbean isle has new allure for U.S. tourists. Not since the Cuban exodus precipitated by the rise of Fidel Castro has Puerto Rico been so flush. In the late 1950s and early '60s, hotels and casinos fled Havana for San Juan, setting up gleaming resorts on capitalist-friendly shores. Over time, islands from the Bahamas to Aruba turned travelers' heads with newer resorts and more exotic settings.

A Puerto Rican woman was charged with a weapons violation at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport after security officials located a pink stun gun in her carry-on bag, according to local authorities. The Transportation Security Administration, which screened the woman, said a small pocket knife was also located in her bag. However, the Maryland Transportation Authority, which responded and charged 56-year-old Carmen Luz Pineiro Roman, said it has no record of the knife. First Sgt. Jonathan Green, a MdTA Police spokesman, said officers responded to a domestic concourse about 6:37 a.m. and issued Roman a criminal citation - the result of a lesser weapon violation.

Tropical Storm Dorian, the fourth cyclone of the Atlantic hurricane season, is moving through the Atlantic, tracking to pass north of Puerto Rico by early next week. The storm was becoming more organized early Thursday, with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph about 700 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands, according to the National Hurricane Center. From there, there is some uncertainty as to how the storm could develop. Dorian is expected to move relatively quickly toward the west or west-northwest, passing north of most of the Caribbean islands.

Adam Jones delivered again at the World Baseball Classic, driving home a run in the seventh inning of the U.S. team's 7-1 win over Puerto Rico in Miami on Tuesday night. Jones' single up the middle against former Orioles lefty J.C. Romero stretched the U.S. lead to 4-0. The Orioles center fielder had the go-ahead hit in the U.S. team's win over Canada on Sunday, which sent them through to the double-elimination second round. The U.S. is off Wednesday and faces the Dominican Republic on Thursday at 7 p.m., also at Marlins Park.

Darion Atkins scored a career-high 17 points as one of four players in double figures to lead Virginia over visiting Morgan State, 75-57, on Wednesday night. Dewayne Jackson had a season-high 32 points - one shy of his career high - on 11-for-16 shooting to lead the Bears (3-5), who have lost two straight after a two-game winning streak. Akil Mitchell added 15 points to go with 12 rebounds for the Cavaliers (9-2), who won their eighth straight game. Virginia overcame an early challenge from a pesky Morgan State squad that kept fighting well into the second half, continuing an impressive run in which their average margin of victory has been more than 20 points.

LOS ANGELES - A federal judge has ruled that the government's anti-racketeering statute, created to deal with drug bosses and organized crime figures, can be used in lawsuits against the troubled Los Angeles Police Department. Besides allowing one of the largest police departments in the United States to be dealt with like a criminal enterprise, the decision Monday by Judge William J. Rea of federal District Court drastically increases the city's potential liability in its worst police scandal in decades - the law permits a longer statute of limitations and could triple the damages the city could otherwise face.

At first glance, the stretch of Eastern Avenue in Highlandtown doesn't look like much. The largest stores are discount emporiums that look like they've seen better days. On closer inspection, though, things aren't so bad. The North Pole Ice Cream Co., which opened recently, serves hot meals as well as ice cream from a cozy, brightly painted location. Retro Mart, a store selling funky '50s-style furniture and knickknacks, opened in 2003. And then there's Chicken Rico, one of the brightest spots on the street with a colorful painted sign out front and a clean, sunny interior.

Guard Jannah Tucker (New Town) had one rebound and one assist before leaving in the first quarter with a left knee injury as Team USA (2-0) rolled to a 68-28 victory over Argentina (1-1) on Thursday at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship on Thursday in Gurabo, Puerto Rico. Lexie Brown, a guard who has committed to Maryland, had six points, two rebounds and two steals but committed six turnovers. Brown said of losing Tucker: "We lost Allisha [Gray] earlier [Aug. 7] and we're just short on guards right now. So her hurting her knee is killer, but it's going to give us more fire to win this for her, for Allisha, and for each other, basically.

Darcia Ramirez-Segura, 43, has been charged with conspiracy to commit identification fraud, according to a statement from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, relating to the alleged trafficking of the identities of Puerto Rican U.S. citizens and their identity documents.
