LOS ANGELES (AP) — JPMorgan Chase is disclosing new details about this summer's cyberattack.

JPMorgan says there's no evidence that the data breach included account numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers or dates of birth.

HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong protesters pushing for democratic reforms are welcoming an offer by the territory's leader of talks to defuse the crisis.

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by Missouri and five other states asking the court to strike down a California law that bars the sale of eggs produced by hens kept in cages that are too small. U.S. District Judge Kimberly Mueller says the states lack legal standing to sue because they failed to demonstrate that the California law harms their citizenry as a whole instead of just their egg farmers. Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster sued in February challenging the law set to take effect in 2015.
