AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas Supreme Court has declined to hear the case of retired Army Capt. Le Roy Torres, who sued the state of Texas three years ago because he said he was forced out of his job with the state highway patrol after returning from a deployment to Iraq with injuries caused by burn pit exposure.

“I was very hopeful that Texas would come through,” Torres said from his home near Corpus Christi. “As supportive as they say they are for the first-responder community, I’ll keep the faith and keep pressing on.” https://www.stripes.com/news/veterans/texas-supreme-court-won-t-hear-veteran-s-case-over-firing-related-to-burn-pit-injuries-1.633550

      A nurse accused of hitting and killing a U.S. Navy chief petty officer with his car after a dispute at a Virginia Beach bar in July was indicted this month on new charges. Joshua Ceruti Robinson was initially charged with malicious wounding, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, after police said he hit 40-year-old Stephen “Tyler” Murphy with his car. A grand jury indicted him on one count each of involuntary manslaughter and hit-and-run, which both carry maximum sentences of 10 years, according to Macie Allen, a spokesperson for the Virginia Beach commonwealth’s attorney.
