The U.S. is badly in need of immigration reform, and if the case hadn't been made sufficiently by President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney's dueling views of the matter last week, the nation's highest court has now weighed into the debate, too. In striking down three of four challenged sections of Arizona's anti-illegal immigration law on a 5-3 vote (with Justice Elena Kagan recused), theU.S. Supreme Court has chosen to side with the Obama administration on everything but what many saw as the most controversial aspect of the 2010 law - the provision that allows police officers to check the immigration status of people they stop.

The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled Monday that a man convicted of child sex abuse did not have to register as a sex offender because it would violate the state constitution's provisions against retroactive punishments. The ruling was split, with a plurality of three of the court's seven judges agreeing on one interpretation of the law, while others had different opinions and one dissented from the opinion. The man, identified only as John Doe in his appeal, was convicted in 2006 of child sex abuse stemming from an incident in the early 1980s when he was a middle school teacher in Washington County and the 13-year-old child was his student, according to the ruling.

Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein on Monday reached out to the black community by answering call-in questions on WOLB's Larry Young Morning Show about his controversial decision to not prosecute the three Baltimore police officers involved in the death of East Baltimore resident Anthony Anderson. On Thursday, Bernstein said his office had determined that Detective Todd A. Strohman used appropriate action when he tackled Anderson during a September drug arrest that resulted in broken ribs and a lacerated spleen, which killed the 46-year-old man. Officers said Anderson was attempting to swallow drugs while walking away from them, which caused Strohman to use a “bear hug” to take him to the ground and preserve evidence.

A three-judge panel of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., issued a split decision Tuesday in the battle between the state of Maryland and a Takoma Park college affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church.Columbia Union College's lawsuit against the state -- which refuses to give the school funding granted to other private colleges because of its religious orientation -- was dismissed at the District Court level a year ago.The appellate court found that the state does have the right to deny the funding to institutions whose religious affiliation is too closely intertwined with its educational mission.

Boxing, as Lou Benson, Baltimore's fighting sheriff, discovered, can be a strange business."One minute I'm telling the media I want to fight Mike Tyson in prison," he said. "The next minute I'm telling you I couldn't beat the 10-count."Benson's dream of challenging former heavyweight champion Tyson, who is serving a six-year sentence in Indiana for rape, was exposed as a hoax last night when he was knocked out by youthful Virginia cruiserweight Jason Waller after 45 seconds of the ninth round of their co-feature before 1,600 at the Pikesville Armory.

Late Rahman fight: Last night's heavyweight bout be tween Hasim Rahman and Rob Calloway ended too late to be in cluded in this edition. A complete report can be found in later editions or on the Internet at www.baltimoresun.com. If he is to achieve his dream of one day becoming the heavweight champion of the world, Baltimore's Brandon Cabell learned last night that he has a lot of work to do. Although he was at times out-hustled and out-punched by his shorter rival, Dominic Jenkins of La Mesa, Texas, the 6-foot-6 Cabell did enough in the eyes of two of the three judges to win a four-round, split decision.

Arbitrators have sided with the Maryland Stadium Authority in ruling that it should get the money from events held in Oriole Park's club lounges but refused the agency's request to delay paying a $10 million judgment into a fund to improve the stadium. The split decision prompted claims of victory from both the agency and the Orioles. The panel, in a decision signed Monday but released to both sides yesterday, left it to the team and its landlord to try once again to work out when the state must deposit the $10 million.

The culmination of the Carroll County Redistricting Committee's three months of deliberation and public input will be presented to the county's delegation to Annapolis on Dec. 13 as part of legislators' annual review of pending issues for the upcoming General Assembly session. But the committee's recommendation - a 4-3 vote by members calling for a change in district lines for the five county commissioner districts - may already be in question, especially since the chairman of the redistricting panel was among those voting against it. The delegation has the final word on choosing the county's five-commissioner-district map, which is being updated this year based on new population data from the 2010 census.

At the behest of Mayor Sheila Dixon's legal defense team, the theft and perjury charges against the mayor will be separated into two trials. Her lawyers aren't talking about the strategy behind the shift, but other attorneys tell The Sun's Annie Linskey that trying the charges separately might make Ms. Dixon look less culpable - it lessens the possibility of a cumulative effect on jurors in which a profusion of charges might make her seem guilty -...

Top-ranked Loyola and No. 5 Mount St. Joseph play similar styles of soccer that depend on tough defense, solid goalkeeping and an opportunistic offense that catches the opposition on its heels with a long clear or quick set piece. Yesterday, as dusk set on the field at UMBC Stadium and the unseasonably warm weather turned into a fall chill, the Dons and Gaels walked off the field as co-champions of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference after a scoreless draw through two overtimes.
