LEGAL MATTERS
In a class-action suit filed in Nashville Nov. 13, more than 70,000 fans claim they were cheated out of tickets for Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus's sold-out concert tour. They are accusing Interactive Media Marketing and Smiley Miley Inc. of failing to provide Miley World fan club members with the priority seats they were allegedly promised in exchange for the $29.95 annual dues. A rep for Cyrus, 14, however, called the claim "simply false," adding that, "Miley World members had far greater access to concert tickets than the general public and other fan clubs." ...

Nov. 6 by promoters who claim he skipped out on a planned Asian tour to avoid media scrutiny related to sexual assault allegations against the illusionist.

Robert Singer, 49, the now-suspended chief operating officer of the National Children's Museum in Washington, D.C., was arrested Nov. 6 and charged with distributing child pornography over the Internet.
