A federal judge in Nebraska has granted a motion to temporarily block enforcement of the state's ban on flag mutilation, saying the law is "almost certainly unconstitutional."

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon outlawed the marijuana-like substance known as "K2" on Tuesday.

A trial is under way in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the wife of a Shawnee man who suffered a fatal accident while riding a privately owned bus for Kansas State sports fans.
