"We are unable to conclude that it is clear and indisputable that the petitioner cannot receive a fair trial by an impartial jury in the Eastern Division of Massachusetts," the judges wrote in the 80-page opinion.


By Sebastien Malo NEW YORK (Reuters) - Salvatore Grillo was walking his Labrador retriever near Brooklyn's Prospect Park on a cold morning in February when he heard what sounded like a muffled explosion.

In the snowy first week of February, Consolidated Edison Inc, the local utility, tallied about 600 "smokers," fires and occasional explosions involving manholes, part of a seasonal surge that plagues New York every winter. "These incidents are yet another example of New York City's outdated infrastructure.
