As of Tuesday morning, the internet service in North Korea remains sporadic. “North Korea continues its struggle to stay online,” the company announced on Twitter on Tuesday morning. [CNN]

A man who killed his neighbor in what he says was self-defense for playing loud music was granted a new trial last week in Texas.

Rodriguez will have another chance to argue his line of self-defense. [ThinkProgress]
