(CNN) — A suspected drug kingpin on the “15 Most Wanted” fugitives list has been arrested in Los Angeles, the U.S. Marshals Service announced Thursday.
Keith Hasson, 45, was arrested without incident Wednesday at an apartment northwest of downtown Los Angeles, between Burbank and Thousand Oaks, according to a statement from the Marshals Service. He is reputed to have been the leader of a nationwide cocaine and marijuana trafficking ring that operated from 1999 to 2005 and generated more than $20 million in cash and assets, the statement said.
Hasson was wanted on a 2005 open indictment from the U.S. District Court in New Mexico for conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, continuing criminal enterprise and conspiracy to launder money, according to the statement. His brother, Anthony Hasson, was convicted in the same case and was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison.
Wanted: A legal team ready to investigate the merits and downfalls of college football’s Bowl Championship Series.
Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff on Wednesday put out the call for law firms interested in taking on the BCS through a federal lawsuit that seeks to have the bowl series declared an illegal monopoly.
“There are serious antitrust violations in the BCS system that are robbing taxpayers of hundreds of millions of dollars,” Shurtleff said in a prepared statement on Wednesday. “Putting together the strongest legal team from around the country will give us the best chance at bringing equity back to college football.”

The jury hearing the case of Ereck Plancher, the Central Florida player who died during a pre-practice conditioning workout in 2008, returned a verdict of guilty on a charge of negligence against the UCF Athletic Association, determining that it failed to do everything possible to save the player’s life.
The jury awarded Plancher’s parents, who had turned down a settlement offer, $10 million. It also failed to find the athletic department guilty of gross negligence.
The case garnered national attention after several players went public to describe the intensity of the workout, and the fact that Plancher was clearly struggling at the end of it When he fell at the end of some sprints and some teammates had to help him up, coaches yelled at them to stop.

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Two years after she was fired as the University of Alabama’s cheerleading coach, Debbie Greenwell has filed a civil lawsuit against school officials, charging them with gender discrimination.
The lawsuit asks for her job back, for back and forward pay plus interest and for the U.S. District Court in Tuscaloosa to declare that the university violated Title IX, the federal law that bans gender discrimination in schools.
Greenwell said she also wants an answer she’s never received.
“I don’t know why I got fired,” she said in an interview Thursday. “I’d like an apology from Mal Moore.”
The lawsuit names Moore, the Alabama athletics director, as a defendant, along with school president Robert Witt, executive AD Dave Hart and the board of trustees.
