Russia on Thursday pledged broad retaliatory measures against Turkey's economy in revenge for the downing of one of its warplane, as recriminations between Moscow and Ankara reached fever pitch. President Vladimir Putin demanded an apology but his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan bluntly refused, accusing Moscow of slander over claims his country was supporting the brutal Islamic State group.

British judge delays trial of RBS shareholder lawsuit to 2017

26 Nov 2015 11:36:26 -0500

By Kirstin Ridley LONDON (Reuters) - A High Court judge on Thursday delayed the trial in a drawn-out battle between Royal Bank of Scotland and shareholders, criticising the lender and its legal advisers for being "unfocused" and swamped by 25 million documents. Thousands of shareholders are claiming around 4 billion pounds in compensation and alleging that RBS's 12 billion pound ($18 bln) investor cash call in 2008 - launched just before the bank's near collapse - contained misstatements and omissions. Judge Robert Hildyard adjourned the date for the high-profile trial by three months to March 6, 2017, saying he wanted to ensure fair and orderly legal proceedings in the case.
