Bill Cosby sexual assault allegations

Editor's note: The Associated Press had gone to court to compel the release of documents from the 2005 deposition in a sexual lawsuit against comedian Bill Cosby filed by a former Temple University employee. In his sworn testimony, Cosby was asked, "When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" He answered "Yes." Cosby has never been criminally charged but has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual misconduct dating back more than four decades. Three women have brought a defamation lawsuit against him in Massachusetts, which is pending. Cosby's lawyers had fought AP's efforts to unseal this testimony, arguing it could prejudice the jury pool in Massachusetts. - Stephanie

Boston anti-terrorism investigation

Editor's note: Both @ABC and @CNN are reporting, via sources, that Usaama Rahim, the suspect killed by police during a Boston anti-terrorism investigation, had been plotting to travel to New York to attack blogger Pamela Geller. An affidavit filed by an FBI agent only said that Rahim had originally planned to behead someone outside Massachusetts but changed that plan Tuesday to focus on killing a police officer. - Jillian
