* RALEIGH, N.C. -- The State Bar issued a formal reprimand -- the lightest punishment -- for two former prosecutors who withheld evidence that could have helped clear a man convicted of murder and sentenced to death.

* AKRON, Ohio -- The leader of Ohio's largest mosque lost his citizenship for lying about his connections to terrorist groups but cannot be deported until a federal court hears his appeal, which could take 18 months.

Damra was found guilty of lying about his ties to terrorist groups when he applied in 1994 to become a citizen. On Monday, Gwin sentenced the Palestinian-born Damra to two months in prison and four months of home detention.
