There is plenty of unfairness in life. But today, an Israeli woman is getting some justice after the city of Tel Aviv tried to pull a fast one.
In a video Hila Ben Baruch posted on Facebook Monday, Tel Aviv municipal workers are seen painting the pavement and curb around her car. By the time they're done, it's clear that they've painted the car into a handicapped spot.
The Justice Department said Tuesday it could seek more than $5 billion in damages from Standard & Poor's, the nation's biggest credit ratings company, a day after it sued the company, alleging that S&P defrauded investors by giving triple-A ratings to risky subprime mortgage investments.
