U.S. court vacates ruling against Golf Channel over Stanford fraud

Convicted financier Allen Stanford arrives at Federal Court in Houston for sentencing.(Reuters) - A U.S. federal appeals court on Tuesday threw out its own ruling that could have forced the Golf Channel to repay $5.9 million it received from convicted swindler Allen Stanford. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted Golf Channel's request to vacate its March 12 ruling and instead ask the Texas Supreme Court to address a disputed question of state law. Golf Channel, owned by Comcast Corp, had argued that it acted in good faith in receiving the $5.9 million, and in exchange offered sufficient value to Stanford in the form of advertising.

Supertramp co-founder relishes role in 'service industry'

"To me, I look at my job very differently. I actually think of music as a service industry," Roger Hodgson saidRoger Hodgson no longer packs stadiums and doesn't even use the name of his old band, Supertramp, but that doesn't bother him. As his estranged former co-frontman Rick Davies keeps playing as Supertramp, Hodgson has been touring consistently, but more quietly, for the past 15 years and says he feels more comfortable on the smaller stages. "To be honest, I don't really pay much attention to what's happening in the music or entertainment industry," he told AFP as he embarked on his latest tour that started in Germany and includes 14 dates in Canada, where he and Supertramp have been especially popular.
