WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Reporter Michelle Fields is described as upset with a decision by Florida prosecutors not to proceed with the case against Donald Trump's campaign manager. She had accused Corey Lewandowski of grabbing her as she tried to question Trump after a Florida event. A prosecutor says there's not enough evidence to go to trial. He says he's spoken with Fields, and that she was unhappy with the decision not to prosecute. Lewandowski, meanwhile, says he's gratified -- and grateful for Trump's loyalty and support.

UNDATED (AP) — Even as some of the presidential candidates promise to bring back millions of American jobs that have been lost to China and other countries -- most Americans in a new survey say they'd rather buy cheaper items from overseas than pay a premium for products manufactured in the United States. Just nine percent of the people surveyed by the Associated Press and GfK say they only buy American. Nearly three in four say they'd like to buy American goods, but that they are often too costly or too hard to find.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — There's a new battle between the tech industry and the government over privacy rights in the digital age. Microsoft is suing the government over a federal law that lets authorities examine emails or online files without the knowledge of the individual who created or stored them. Microsoft says the Justice Department is abusing a law from decades ago, in order to get court orders requiring the company to turn over customer files that are stored on its server -- without notifying the customer.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks have finished the day more or less where they started after a brief midday rally faded. Airlines rose. Delta Air Lines climbed 1 percent after its results came in ahead of expectations, thanks partly to lower fuel costs. The Dow rose 18 points. The S&P edged up less than a point. The Nasdaq slipped a point.

SEATTLE (AP) — Authorities say a 19-year-old driver of a pickup truck that slammed into children at a school bus stop in a small town outside Seattle today had a history of seizures and was driving with a suspended license. Sheriff's officials say one boy was taken to a Seattle hospital with serious injuries to his chest. Two other students went to another hospital — one with a broken leg and the other with a suspected broken ankle. Three additional children suffered cuts and bruises. The driver has been taken into custody on suspicion of vehicular assault.
