New challenge to abortion ban

A Texas ban on abortion was ruled too restrictive on women with serious complications in pregnancy by a judge on Friday. However that injunction was stopped by an appeal to the Texas Supreme Count, according to the Associated Press.

Judge Jessica Mangum had ruled that it was legal for physicians to end a pregnancy if it created a risk of infection, or in cases when the fetus is unlikely to survive after birth.

The case was the first brought by a woman denied an abortion since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which had created a constitutional right to an abortion in 1973.

Wells Fargo deposits disappeared

A “technical issue” is being blamed for instances in which Wells Fargo bank customers’ deposits “disappeared.”

The New York Times reports that the company said that on Saturday the problem had been fixed.

“A limited number of customers were unable to see recent check deposit transactions on their accounts. All accounts have been resolved and are showing accurate balances and transactions. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience,” said the company in a posting.

Reports of the missing deposits began surfacing on Thursday.
