A federal appeals court has ordered a new trial in a lawsuit filed by the family of the Texas soldier killed during a live-fire training exercise in Hawaii. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling overturned a jury verdict that found the manufacturer of mortar cartridges not liable for causing the 2006 explosion that killed Staff Sgt. Oscar Rodriguez. (AP Photo/Rodriguez Family)
