States ratchet up transgender battle with lawsuit against U.S.

A sign protesting a recent North Carolina law restricting transgender bathroom access in Durham, North CarolinaOfficials from 11 U.S. states sued the Obama administration on Wednesday to overturn a directive telling schools to let transgender students use bathrooms matching their gender identity, decrying the policy as "a massive social experiment." Ramping up the simmering battles over contentious cultural issues in America, the states, led by Texas and most with Republican governors, accused the federal government of rewriting laws by "administrative fiat." "We are willing to fight this all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to," Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told reporters in Austin. Amid a national debate on transgender rights, President Barack Obama's administration on May 13 told U.S. public schools that transgender students must be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice, upsetting Republicans and paving the way for fights over federal funding and legal authority.

Luke Donald of England tees off on the first hole during the final round of the Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio AT&T Oaks Course in San Antonio, Texas on April 24, 2016Two-time champion Luke Donald put himself in the hunt for a hat-trick as he got off to a flyer in the European PGA Championship at Wentworth on Thursday. The Englishman had three birdies in an outward nine of 32, three-under par, and was four-under the card with four to play, two shots behind Australia's Scott Hend, who was out in 31. Joining Donald on four-under were South Africa's Jaco van Zyl, who had played 12 holes, England's Robert Rock, who was on the eighth, and another Australian, Richard Green, who eagled the par-five fourth but was still in the early stages of his round.

New England Patriots urge judges to hear Tom Brady's ban appeal

Tom Brady was plunged into controversy after New England routed Indianapolis in last year's playoffsThe reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots filed a federal court brief Wednesday asking the US Second Circuit Court of Appeals to hear Tom Brady's "Deflategate" suspension appeal. Brady faces a four-game ban at the start of the 2016 NFL campaign for the quarterback's supposed role in the underinflating of footballs for the 2015 American Conference championship game. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell imposed the four-game ban on Brady last year following a league investigation that declared Brady was generally aware of the lower than regulation air pressure in balls used by the Patriots in the playoff contest.

Brent oil breaks above $50 for first time in seven months

Crude oil drips from a valve at an oil well operated by Venezuela's state oil company PDVSA, in the oil rich Orinoco belt, near Morichal at the state of MonagasBy Karolin Schaps and Ron Bousso LONDON (Reuters) - Brent oil futures climbed above $50 a barrel on Thursday for the first time in nearly seven months as a global supply glut that plagued the market for nearly two years showed signs of easing. Oil prices have rallied in recent weeks after a string of outages, due mainly to wildfires in Canada and unrest in Nigeria and Libya, knocked out nearly 4 million barrels per day of production. Above $50 a barrel, oil was seen by many market players as breaching a psychological barrier that could lead producers, particularly among U.S. shale companies, to revive operations scrapped in recent years.

File photo of United States one dollar bills seen on a light table at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in WashingtonNew York state's financial regulator, which recently launched a probe into LendingClub Corp, is preparing to look into the activities at other online lenders and whether they should be licensed in New York, a person familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. The New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) has not yet established which companies it may target, but information it receives in response to a May 17 subpoena sent to LendingClub, one of the largest online lending services, could shed light on broader industry practices that require scrutiny, said the person, who was not authorized to discuss the issue publicly. Last week, NYDFS subpoenaed San-Francisco based LendingClub, a so-called peer-to-peer lender, asking for information about loans it issued to New Yorkers since May 17, 2013.
