PSU LAYOFFS

  • PSU announces it'll cut 19 more positions.  The school says like many colleges and universities, Pitt State has faced declining enrollment in recent years, especially in international students.  PSU says its current funding level is the same as in 2006.  The university has reduced its full-time employees by more than 7% over the past 18 months. 

ACLU LAWSUIT

  • The ACLU of Missouri files a lawsuit against the city of Joplin, citing a violation of a man's First Amendment right to panhandle.  Back in February the city council approved an ordinance the council hoped would decrease the number of panhandlers in the city by limiting where they could solicit.  The ACLU says the ordinance violates free speech rights. 

COSBY CONVICTED

  • Actor and comedian Bill Cosby is free on $1-Million bail awaiting sentencing on three charges of aggravated indecent assault.  A Pennsylvania jury believed his accuser, Andrea Constand, who testified Cosby drugged and molested her at his home in 2004.  Cosby's attorneys plan to appeal.

KOREAN SUMMIT
