Bush Presidential Library Update
The judge who has presided over a high-profile lawsuit against Southern Methodist University for years has suddenly withdrawn from the case, bringing a temporary halt to all proceedings.
State District Judge Martin Hoffman voluntarily recused himself Friday, taking himself out of the picture immediately. The reason was not clear from a motion he filed with the court.

trawl that had been pulled 1,500 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico on
the NOAA research vessel Gordon Gunter. From left to right are Melody Baran of

Service, Alyson Azzara of Southern Mississippi University, and Kevin Barry of
NOAA Fisheries Service. Martinez, a marine mammal specialist, was lead scientist
on the research cruise. It's the first giant squid ever caught in the gulf - the
only other taken from those waters was found dead and floating in 1954.
Scientists were making practice trawls for a study planned in January of sperm
whales, which eat giant squid, and the food available to them.
