(AP) — In a story Aug. 24 about New York Giants owner John Mara commenting on placekicker Josh Brown's one-game suspension, The Associated Press erroneously reported some of the details of the allegations made against Brown and details of the NFL's personal conduct policy. According to the NFL, Brown allegedly grabbed his ex-wife by her wrist, not her throat, and the ex-wife's allegations of 20 abusive incidents were contained in a court filing, not made to the media. Additionally, the NFL's personal conduct policy doesn't mandate a six-game suspension. It calls for a baseline suspension of six games without pay for violations involving assault, with consideration given to possible mitigating or aggravating circumstances.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/ed005ce0e7c64d0bb04f0a305f372083Illinois redistricting referendum won't appear on ballothttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/9f7c036c502441b398e53e883bd4ca12Thu, 25 Aug 2016 23:18:17 GMTCHICAGO (AP) — The Illinois Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a voter referendum seeking to change the system Illinois uses to draw political boundaries is unconstitutional, making it ineligible to appear on the November ballot.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/9f7c036c502441b398e53e883bd4ca12Russian convicted in masterminding global online theft ringhttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/ff20318149f64e61bc068e5e158e811dThu, 25 Aug 2016 22:40:25 GMTSEATTLE (AP) — A federal jury convicted the son of a Russian lawmaker Thursday of hacking into U.S. businesses to steal credit card information and orchestrating an international online theft scheme that netted him millions of dollars.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/ff20318149f64e61bc068e5e158e811dNASA nears the end of its splashdown tests for Mars crafthttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/7ab0b8bfe7634b678eb7d3a2c1b96c82Thu, 25 Aug 2016 22:32:46 GMTHAMPTON, Va.
