* Texas executed a Mexican citizen yesterday after SCOTUS denied a last minute request for a reprieve. Neither the International Court of Justice nor the Bush administration is pleased. [New York Times]
* Ninth Circuit to review an e-mail hacking case that could redefine online privacy. [Washington Post]
* Reputed mobster John Gotti indicted … again. This time in Tampa. Maybe Florida prosecutors will fare better than New York ones have. [New York Times]

* Biggest identity theft ring ever exposed. Federal prosecutors charge 11 people from five different countries with stealing 41 million credit card numbers. [International Herald Tribune]
