The United States Supreme Court removed the last legal roadblock to Mexican trucks rolling across United States roadways, ending the Bush Administration's long-running dispute with labor unions, environmentalists, and consumer advocates. The court’s unanimous decision said that the president has the authority to let the trucks into the U.S.
Japanese police arrested a former head of Mitsubishi Motors and five others related to suspicion of professional negligence that led to the death of a truck driver two-years ago. If found guilty, the suspects face as many as five-years in prison or maximum fine of $4,530. DaimlerChrysler AG may sue Mitsubishi Motors over quality problems and the lawsuit could deepen financial woes of the cash-strapped Japanese automaker.
