MACOMB TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan lawyer who represented an Air Force reservist during the Red Scare era of the 1950s has died. He was 92. Kenneth Sanborn’s son, Alan, says he died of heart failure Tuesday. Sanborn was a Macomb County judge for more than 40 years. As a lawyer, he represented Milo Radulovich, who was removed from the Air Force because family members were accused of being communist sympathizers. The decision was reversed. The case was publicized on the CBS show “See It Now,” with Edward R. Murrow.

Kelly in the District of Columbia granted Acosta a two-week injunction to return to work.
