SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The California Supreme Court will decide whether Facebook and other social media companies must turn over user content to criminal defendants preparing for trial.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - An appeals court has refused to block a court decision that says a California law allowing the terminally ill to end their lives was passed illegally.

The volunteer group Project Recover announced the plane carrying him in 1944 has been located beneath 213 feet of water off the coast of Papua New Guinea.
