- Judge Rebukes Cameron For Nigella Comments
The judge in the Nigella Lawson court case has rebuked David Cameron for comments he made saying he was on Team Nigella. Jurors at Isleworth Crown Court have been told to disregard the comments made by the Prime Minister in an interview for The Spectator in which he said he was a "massive fan" of the television chef. Judge Robin Johnson told jurors they should disregard Mr Cameron's comments and said: "It is of regret when people in public office comment about a person who is involved in a trial which is in progress." The trial of Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo, who are accused of abusing their positions by spending £685,000 on credit cards belonging to Ms Lawson and her former husband Charles Saatchi, is now in its third week.

- Russians give rouble a symbol
The Russian public have picked a first official symbol for the rouble, choosing a sign the central bank said would enhance the appeal of the once-tarnished currency on global markets. The central bank had published five proposed rouble symbols on its website, inviting voters to pick one and give a brief explanation for their choice. The sign, now approved by the central bank, represents a largely symbolic move aimed at improving the appeal of the rouble that was damaged in the early post-Soviet years by economic chaos and hyperinflation. "I believe that the approved symbol will worthily represent our currency on the world markets," Governor Elvira Nabiullina said at its presentation.

- Mandela Memorial: Deaf Signer Was 'Fake'
South Africa's deaf federation has claimed that an interpreter using sign language during the Mandela memorial was a "fake". Bruno Druchen, national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa, said the unidentified man, who was on stage alongside world leaders including US President Barack Obama, "was moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for". South African parliament member Wilma Newhoudt, a member of the ruling party, also said the man communicated nothing with his hand and arm movements. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages.
- Weinstein brothers sue Time Warner over 'Hobbit' films
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - Movie producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein have sued Time Warner Inc for at least $75 million over its decision to divide the screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's book "The Hobbit" into three parts, and refusing to pay them for the second and third films. In a complaint filed on Tuesday in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, the Weinstein brothers and Miramax LLC said executives at Warner Brothers and its New Line Cinema unit chose to split "The Hobbit" as a pretext to deprive them of 5 percent of the gross receipts from the last two films. The Weinsteins said they had in 1998 sold New Line the movie rights to "The Hobbit" and Tolkien's trilogy "The Lord of the Rings," after having spent more than $10 million to adapt them. They said New Line had agreed to make payments for the "first motion picture," but not "remakes," based on the books.
