By the time a nasty quarrel reaches the Florida Supreme Court, it's usually about more than just the people involved. If it doesn't have a broader implication for the public or for the law, the court is not likely to want to hear it.

Fun ways to enjoy the World Cup as a family

Every American kid knows about the Super Bowl and the World Series. But the World Cup may be less familiar – unless you play the so-called "beautiful game," or your family has roots in a soccer-obsessed country such as Brazil. The international tournament is becoming more popular in the United States, though it's been a cherished event for families around the globe since the 1930s.

This year, the games are being played in various cities throughout Russia, including Sochi, which hosted the 2014 Olympics.
