FCC reversal of net neutrality rules expected to be published Thursday: sourcesBy David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is expected to publish on Thursday its December order overturning the landmark Obama-era net neutrality rules, two sources briefed on the matter said Tuesday.

Steven Cohen loses bid to seal lawsuit alleging sexism at Point72A U.S. judge on Tuesday rejected billionaire investor Steven A. Cohen's request to temporarily seal a lawsuit accusing his hedge fund firm Point72 Asset Management LP of sexism toward women. U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres in Manhattan said Point72 failed to overcome the presumption under the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment that the complaint by Lauren Bonner, its head of talent analytics, should be accessible to the public.

VW bid to delay first U.S. diesel emissions trial rejected

VW bid to delay first U.S. diesel emissions trial rejectedA Virginia state court judge on Tuesday rejected a request by the U.S. unit of Volkswagen AG to delay several of the company's trials over excess emissions because of "inflammatory" comments made by a lawyer representing car owners that it fears will prejudice the jury. Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge Bruce White said after a hearing that he would proceed with a Feb. 26 trial involving a North Carolina man who bought a 2014 diesel Jetta. Volkswagen said publicity from a Netflix documentary that disclosed the company had jointly sponsored tests that exposed monkeys in 2014 to toxic diesel fumes could prejudice its chances of receiving a fair trial.
