  • Basketball player settles defamation lawsuit against Xavier

    CINCINNATI (AP) — A former Xavier University basketball player has settled his lawsuit against the school over their handling of what he claims was a false rape allegation made against him.

    Federal Judge S. Arthur Spiegel dismissed Dez Wells' lawsuit against Xavier on Thursday, saying the two had resolved their conflict. Settlement terms were not released.

    Wells' attorneys did not return calls for comment and a university spokeswoman declined to discuss the settlement.

    Wells' lawsuit accused the school and its president of damaging his reputation by expelling him over a student's 2012 rape allegation. The student later declined to press charges, and a grand jury...

  • 'X-Men' director calls sex abuse suit a shakedown

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The director of the upcoming "X-Men" film is calling a lawsuit accusing him of raping an aspiring model and actor in 1999 a shakedown.

    Bryan Singer wrote in a statement released Thursday that he is avoiding promotional events for his upcoming film "X-Men: Days for Future Past" to avoid distracting from the movie.

  • NCAA approves giving greater power to major conference schools

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA's board of directors endorsed a new proposal Thursday, giving schools in the five largest football conferences more autonomy and more voting power in changing rules within the organization.

    The changes would allow the wealthiest schools to adopt some legislation on their own, including provisions for money beyond what current scholarships cover, up to the full cost-of-attendance, expanded insurance coverage and money to help families travel to NCAA tournaments.

    The proposal would affect all 65 schools in the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC -- which includes football independent Notre Dame.

    NCAA President Mark Emmert said he supports...

  • Ladies Home Journal ceasing subscription service

    Meredith Corp. says it is ending subscription service of "Ladies' Home Journal" due to declining advertiser interest.

    The magazine was launched in 1883 and is one of the nation's oldest women's magazines. It remains quite popular with a current circulation of 3.2 million. But with a media reader age of 57, the magazine faces tough competition for advertisers amid a sea of other women's magazines that appeal to broader demographics.

    Meredith spokesman Art Slusark said Thursday said that the magazine's July edition will be its final subscription issue. After that, it will move to a quarterly newsstand format.

    The company says 40 to...
