Moscow Ruling for Jehovah's Witnesses Strengthens Religious Freedom
A Moscow judge Friday refused to liquidate the Jehovah's Witnesses' Moscow community, giving the sect the victory in a two-year-long court battle. The case has attracted international attention as a test of Russia's controversial 1997 law that forced relatively recent denominations, including the LDS Church, to undergo a complicated registration process.

Hatch's Napster Plans
In the wake of the appeals court ruling against the Internet company Napster, Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, has stated that Napster's loss may be a loss for general music audiences as well.

North Carolina Claims Census Lawsuit without Merit
The state of North Carolina filed a motion for summary judgement Thursday in US District Court, claiming that Utah has failed to make the case that the US Census Bureau should include its 11,000 LDS overseas missionaries in the census count. The state of Utah filed the lawsuit challenging the census results January 10th, after the Census Bureau released results giving North Carolina an additional seat in the US House of Representatives. The results showed that Utah missed getting that seat by just 857 people.

Seattle Zoning Battle Shifts to Washington State Legislature
Opponents of a King County, Washington plan that would limit the size of churches and public schools in the county's rural areas have launched a new effort to stop the plan. Last week the county council put a 10-month moratorium on the building of new churches and schools in the county's rural areas, as a temporary compromise so that the county executive's plan to limit building size could be studied. Now, a state legislator has introduced a bill that would block the county from limiting building size.
