REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton/File Photo(Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures rose on Tuesday as the formal go-ahead for President-elect Joe Biden’s transition to the White House ended weeks of political uncertainty and added to hopes of an economic recovery next year. Signs that a working COVID-19 vaccine could be available before the end of the year have put the benchmark S&P 500 on course for its best November since 1980 and rekindled demand for cyclical sectors such as industrials and financials after a virus-led crash earlier this year. Futures linked to the blue-chip Dow jumped 1% in early trading, outperforming Nasdaq 100 futures as investors set up to again rotate out of the technology heavyweights that were seen as safe bets during the recession. ET, Dow e-minis were up 280 points, or 0.95%, S&P 500 e-minis were up 25 points, or 0.7%, and Nasdaq 100 e-minis were up 36 points, or 0.3%.

Spokespeople for the Justice Department and PRAC declined to comment. Due to the unusual circumstances, the government promised lenders as the program launched in April that they would not be held responsible if borrowers flouted program rules. To date, the Justice Department, working with other agencies, has charged over 80 individuals for stealing more than $250 million. Congressional investigators last month singled out some large PPP lenders for prioritizing their existing customers, disadvantaging women and minority-owned businesses. [L4N2H73KE]Depending on the circumstances, policies that hurt such “protected” groups - even if inadvertently - can violate fair lending rules.

LONDON (Reuters) - Scotland’s High Court was told on Tuesday that the conviction of a Libyan man over the 1988 Lockerbie aircraft bombing, the deadliest militant attack in British history, rested on evidence that was badly flawed.

His family’s barrister, Claire Mitchell, told the court that the prosecution’s evidence in the original trial was flawed to the extent that the case against Megrahi was not proven. “No reasonable jury, properly directed, could have reached a guilty verdict” based on the evidence, she said.

David Dinkins, New York City’s First Black Mayor, Dies at 93

David N. Dinkins, the first Black mayor of New York City who worked to unite a divided city as it battled a high crime rate, died Monday at his home in Manhattan at 93 years old, according to the city’s police department. Mr. Dinkins, a Democrat, was elected mayor in 1989 at the end of a municipal scandal that plagued then-Mayor Ed Koch’s third term. He defeated Mr. Koch in a mayoral primary and went on to beat the Republican candidate, then-U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani. When he took office, Mr. Dinkins vowed to be the mayor for every resident and promised a new era in city politics. But Mr. Dinkins’s message of unity and the programs he launched—including a popular after-school program for students and an advisory board to field police complaints—were overshadowed by a high crime rate, a fiscal crisis and race-related riots.
