"Study Finds Sharp Drop in the Number of Terrorism Cases Prosecuted": Eric Lichtblau will have this article Monday in The New York Times.

And The Washington Post on Monday will report that "Terrorism Prosecutions Drop; Analysis Shows a Spike After 9/11, Then a Steady Decline."

Via a post from Orin Kerr at "The Volokh Conspiracy," I see that the study in question can be accessed here.

And in somewhat related coverage, last Monday's edition of The Miami Herald contained an article headlined "Government's case against terror suspect faces obstacles; The prosecution of a former 'enemy combatant' from Broward County is not going as smoothly as predicted."

Game one: Philadelphia Phillies 8, Atlanta Braves 7; Game two: Atlanta Braves 3, Philadelphia Phillies 1 (11 innings). Today, my son and I saw twenty innings of baseball at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. In game one, Ryan Howard hit three home runs to further extend the Phillies' single-season record and, in the process, break the record for a Major League Baseball player in his sophomore season. Nevertheless, the Braves managed to rally for a one run lead in the top of the ninth inning, requiring the Phillies to score two in the bottom of the ninth to notch the win. You can access the box score at this link, while wraps are available here and here.

Game two, by contrast, was a low scoring affair, as both starters held the opposition to a single run. Indeed, it was not until the top of the 11th inning that the Braves were able to jump ahead to a 3-1 lead, and this time closer Bob Wickman was equal to the task, holding the Phillies scoreless in the bottom of the 11th.

"High court suspends LNP fine; When final order will be issued still unclear": Yesterday's edition of The Lancaster (Pa.) Intelligencer Journal contained an article that begins, "The state Supreme Court Friday temporarily suspended a judge's $1,000-a-day fine on Lancaster Newspapers Inc. for refusing to turn over two reporters' computers to the state attorney general."

And The Associated Press reports that "Court Halts Fines for Newspaper for Now."
