Comic Con Conflict Continues

Bar-exam prep, Virginia corruption, Iranian opposition, $50B order rounds out roundup

Welcome to Monday, the start of a week that features the two-day July Maryland bar exam.

Here are a few news items to begin your week.

— Holy trademark infringement, Batman! Organizers of comic-book conventions clash over name.

— Yes, Virginia, former Gov. Bob McDonnell’s corruption trial begins today.

— Obama administration seeks to shield information about group that opposes Iran.
