Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 14, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - 3t In custody Robert Gordon, 17, one of the two men who held 22 persons hostage for nearly 12 hours in the Inner Circle Lounge in Dallas, Tex., is led to a police car by a detective after surrendering. Gordon and Milton Allen Frank, 18, barricaded the lounge and held patrons and employees after an aborted holdup. Pipeline ruling review sought JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -Alaska . will ask the United States Supreme Court to review a lower-court ruling that has blocked construction of the trans-Alaska oil pipeline, Gov. William Egan says. Construction was sidetracked last Friday by a ruling of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The state also will ask the interior department to shift to Alaska control of the 789-mile pipeline corridor from the Arctic North Slope to the southern port of Valdez, Egan said lion-day. Meanwhile, Alaska Senators Ted Stevens and Mike Gravel said they plan to introduce legislation to permit construction of the line. The lower court ruled that the proposed 150-foot right of way for tiie line violated the Minerals Leasing Act of 1920. Under the act, rights of way must be no wider than 50 feet. A spokesman for Gravel said the senator is considering three legislative approaches to undo the bonds holding down construction of the line to pipe crude oil from the new fields of the North Slope. One would be to amend the 1920 law. The second would be to authorize a specific exception for Alyeska, a consortium of oil firms. The third would give the interior secretary authority to grant a wide right of way. Egan said he, state Attorney-General John Havelock and Charles Herbert, Alaska's natural resources commissioner, will go to Washington to meet interior department and congressional leaders and try to plan a way to get clearance for the line. Egan said the state's appeal to the Supreme Court will concentrate on refusal by the lower court to rule on environmental issues in the case. The court split 4 to 3 in declining to rule on policy questions brought up by three national environmental groups. More than tv/o years ago, the groups started the case by obtaining a district court injunction tgainst construction. It was based on the national Environmental Policy, Act. The circuit court said that the environmental questions were not "ripe" for determination because the court blocked construction on the basis of the Minerals Leasing Act. No-fault insurance bill is passed ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York state legislature has approved a no-fault auto insurance bill that will enable injured motorists to recover up to $50,000 in damages without having to sue. With Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller set to sign the bill today, the measure will go into effect Feb. 1, 1974, ushering in what its backers say will be a new era of lower premiums and greater efficiency in the automobile insurance business. For the average motorist, the sponsors say, the bill will bring a premium reduction of about $14 a car a year. The senate approved the bill 40-to-20. The assembly vote was 99 to 47. The bill requires a 15-per-cent premium cut for those drivers carrying the absolute minimum liability coverage of $10,000 for Banker resigns LONDON (CP) - Sir Leslie O'Brien, 65-year-old governor of the Bank of England, has resigned, effective June 30. His successor is Gordon Richardson, 57, a director of the central bank and chairman of J. William Schroder Wagg and Co., one of Britain's leading merchant banks. an individual and $20,000 for a( single accident. Drivers who, take only the minimum and( agree to pay for the first $200 of their medical costs themselves will get a reduction of 20 per cent. But most drivers have more than the minimum, and for them the premium reductions are not spelled out. The $14 figure is only an estimate by the sponsors. REPLACES TRADITION The bill replaces the centuries-old tradition of English common law under which injured parties have to sue those responsible for their injuries to recover any damages. Any victim of an accident could recover up ot $50,000 from his own insurance company for the cost of treating his injuries and for some related economic costs. Property damage would not be covered. Among the recoverable economic costs are 80 per cent of lost wages, up to $1,000 a month for three years; the cost of hiring someone to take the victim's place in running a business, and up to $25 a day for hiring a housekeeper. To get damages above those levels, the injured person must sue. If damages are above $500 or if the victim has suffered a compound fracture or other serious injury, the victim may sue, recovering from the other party's insurance company and What his own has not paid.
