Two incidents on separate airplanes at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport led to evacuations on Thursday, with three people suffering minor injuries on one flight, airport officials said.

In the other incident at the airport, a landing gear tire caught fire shortly after Spirit Airlines Flight 407 landed from Orlando, Florida, the airport said.
By Jonathan Stempel and Steve Ginsburg NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Tom Brady's effort to void his four-game suspension was set back on Thursday as litigation embroiling the New England Patriots star quarterback was sent to a New York judge, who urged a speedy resolution to the "Deflategate" scandal. U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan ordered the National Football League and NFL Players Association to begin settlement talks "forthwith actively," and cool their public sniping. "The earth is already sufficiently scorched." The NFL and the union declined to comment.

James Woods Is Suing a Guy on Twitter For $10 Million
Papers were reportedly filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday
Actor James Woods has sued a Twitter user for defamation after the user allegedly accused the actor of being a cocaine addict.
On July 15, the Hollywood Reporter says, the user known as @abelisted apparently responded to a tweet from the actor about Caitlyn Jenner and Planned Parenthood with “cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting.”
The user account @abelisted has since been deleted. However, Woods went to the Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, the Reporter says, to file his suit, claiming that the @abelisted’s “reckless and malicious behavior, through the worldwide reach of the internet, has now jeopardized Woods’ good name and reputation on an international scale.”
The suit continues: “In the past, [@abelisted] has referred to Woods with such derogatory terms as ‘prick,’ ‘joke,’ ‘ridiculous,’ ‘scum’ and ‘clown-boy.'”
