A parent who has been grieving the loss of her foster child says foster parents should have more legal rights when a child dies.

The landmark trial of a South West farmer accused of contaminating his neighbour's crops with genetically modified canola has wrapped up in the Supreme Court. Organic farmer Steve Marsh is suing his neighbor Michael Baxter for $85,000 in damages.

Mr Marsh claims the contamination caused him to lose his organic certification on more than half his property for almost three years. In the Supreme Court today, Mr Marsh's lawyers argued Michael Baxter showed negligence because he could reasonably have foreseen the risks of the seeds being spread by swathing his crops.

Australia's system of organic certification will come under intense scrutiny when two neighbouring farmers do battle in the Western Australian Supreme Court in a test case on genetically modified crop contamination.

Organic farmer Steve Marsh, from Kojonup in the state's Great Southern region, is suing his neighbour Michael Baxter for alleged negligence and nuisance. Mr Marsh claims genetically modified (GM) canola seed blew onto his farm in 2010, causing him to lose his organic status. He says he is prepared to risk his 480-hectare property to defend his right to farm without interference.

Anyone can say they're part of Anonymous. It's the perfect cover for hackers with motives more sinister than fun and propaganda.

Could that be why private intelligence firm Stratfor was just hacked? The Operation AntiSec collaborators Anonymous and LulzSec dominated media coverage of online security through 2011, taking credit for hacks of Sony, AT&T, the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency and News International newspapers - even though the more serious cybercriminals continued working on the money-spinners. The Stratfor hack looks like all the others. It was announced via Twitter accounts associated with Anonymous. Samples of the pilfered data were posted online as evidence. The hackers taunted the victim about its pathetic defences. And the data vandalism was dressed up as political action.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced Monday that she has abolished the state's Child Protective Services department and has replaced it with a new division.

The move comes in response to an internal investigation that revealed 6,000 reports of child abuse or neglect were never investigated. The Republican governor said she was ending the agency's oversight by the Department of Economic Security by executive order, saying the recent scandal "broke my heart and makes me angry." "Enough with the uninvestigated reports of abuse and neglect. Enough with the lack of transparency. And enough with the excuses," she said. Brewer praised a special team she created to investigate the problems and said more than 3,000 children have now been seen by social workers or police.

Jessie Thornton sleeps during the day and runs errands and works out during the night. "My wife, she's an ER nurse and works three 12-hour shifts, so I adjusted my schedule to be like her schedule," said Thornton.

The 64-year-old retired firefighter moved to a Surprise retirement community from Ohio. Jessie says his late hours have put him in the police spotlight. "I've been stopped 10 times in Surprise and given four tickets, it's amazing," said Thornton. His latest incident with Surprise police officers prompted Thornton to hire a lawyer with plans to sue the department. Around 11 p.m. Thornton, according to Surprise Police Department paperwork, was pulled over for crossing the white line in his lane. "He (the officer) walked up and he said 'I can tell you're driving DUI by looking in your eyes,'" said Thornton. The 64-year-old says his eyes could have been red because he had just left LA Fitness where he was in the pool swimming.

An eastern Arizona boy who has spent nearly three years in residential treatment for killing his father's friend will be back in court Thursday because of probation violations, and the judge has said she would consider placing him in foster care.

The boy, who is just shy of his 13th birthday, pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in the 2008 shooting death of Tim Romans in St. Johns. Prosecutors agreed to drop a murder charge against him in the death of his father, 29-year-old Vincent Romero, because they believed that it would give him a better chance at a normal life.

It almost sounds like the makings of a joke -- an atheist, a muslim and the Mechanicsburg Halloween parade. But non-believers aren't laughing about an attack and insist what's really frightening is the way a district judge ruled on it.

The Atheists of Central Pennsylvania decided to walk in the Mechanicsburg Halloween parade. There was a zombie Pope and a zombie Muhammed. On YouTube, you can catch a scary moment. It's dark and distorted, but a Muslim man comes off the curb extremely offended at Muhammed being depicted in this way. "He grabbed me, choked me from the back, and spun me around to try to get my sign off that was wrapped around my neck," said Ernie Perce, who donned the costume.
