Utah lawyer Jesse Trentadue told U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups this week that former government operative John Matthews decided not to testify after the FBI agent contacted him and pressured him not to do so.

Attorney Jesse Trentadue's witnesses include a police officer who was at the bomb scene and a former FBI agent. Trentadue filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the FBI in 2008.

Shelter Dogs Turned Into Saviors at Elite Training Center

Lead in text: 
Search and rescue dogs were prominent in the aftermath of the Murrah Federal Building bombing in Oklahoma City. But one rescuer came away with a drive to help make sure there were more dogs available for the important work.
Callie was a washout. A Labrador retriever raised to be a seeing-eye dog, her bold curiosity was ill-suited to a life of leading around the blind, leaving her a born-and-bred worker with no job to do.

While the nation’s attention is focused on the unfolding events following Monday’s explosions at the Boston Marathon, Oklahoma City bombing survivors, victims’ family members and others gathered Friday morning for the annual remembrance of that disaster.

After 18 years, the service follows a routine: bag pipes, one second of silence for each of the 168 people who died, a few comments, and then the reading of the names of those killed in the blast.

But this year, the emotions seemed closer to the surface at the service held in the sanctuary of First Church across the street from the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.
