Supreme Court rejects appeal over pickup seized at border

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal from a Kentucky man whose pickup truck was seized at the Mexican border and held by the federal government for more than two years.

The justices did not comment in leaving in place a lower-court ruling against the man, Gerardo Serrano. He was asking the court to force the government to hold a prompt hearing when it takes people’s property under forfeiture laws.

Those laws allow the government to seize property without ever having to prove it was used for illicit purposes.

Serrano was crossing the border at Eagle Pass, Texas, on his way to visit relatives in 2015 when federal border agents searched and then took possession of his Ford F-250 pickup.

The agents justified the seizure because they found “munitions of war” in the vehicle, five bullets — but no gun. Serrano said he angered the agents by taking picture of the border crossing on his cellphone and then refusing to hand over the device’s password, although he said he deleted the photos.

He didn’t get the truck back until 2017.

Reports: Former Washington tight end Jordan Reed retires from NFL

One day after former Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith announced his retirement, one of his ex-teammates did the same.

Jordan Reed, a third-round draft choice by Washington back in 2013, is retiring from the game after seven seasons in the NFL, according to NFL Network and ESPN.

The NFL Network first reported Reed's retirement. 

Reed spent the first six seasons of his NFL career with Washington. One of the most talented tight ends in recent memory, Reed, unfortunately, battled injuries over the course of his career.

Reed’s 2015 season showed his true potential in the NFL. Playing on a team with talented wide receivers Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Jamison Crowder, Reed was the focal point of that offense. The 2015 team, which was quarterbacked by Kirk Cousins, was one of the best in the NFL that season and won the NFC East.

Revenues rose 1% to $17.73 billion from $17.57 billion last year. Analysts had a consensus revenue estimate of $17.34 billion for the quarter.

Looking forward, the company said it expects to grow revenues for the full year 2021 based on mid-April foreign exchange rates.

Subaru recalls vehicles to fix engine, suspension problems

DETROIT — Subaru is recalling nearly 875,000 cars and SUVs in the U.S. because the engines can stall or a rear suspension part can fall off.


The stalling recall covers more than 466,000 Crosstrek SUVs from 2018 and 2019 and Impreza cars from 2017 through 2019. The company says in government documents that a computer can power the ignition coil after the car is shut off. That can cause a short circuit.


Dealers will update the software, replace ignition coils and if necessary install a new front exhaust pipe. The recall is to start May 28.

The suspension recall affects more than 408,000 2018 and 2019 Crosstreks and 2019 Foresters. Some rear stabilizer bar bolts can loosen and detach, increasing the risk of a crash.


Dealers will tighten bolts and replace any missing ones starting May 14.
