Court won’t reconsider bone marrow payments ruling
USA Today

In December, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a decades-old government practice that made such compensation a crime. The court said a technological breakthrough makes the process of donating bone marrow nearly identical to giving blood plasma.
