interference with a police officer. >> reporter: for more than 36 hours, the 13 were dangling and giving interviews through their phones. they successfully stopped the "fenica," a shell oil icebreaker seen here leaving the port thursday. it had docked for repairs. >> if shell is able to drill in the arctic, there's a great chance for an oil spill. >> reporter: the team brought enough food, water, and platforms to sleep on for days. a judge stepping in though and fining greenpeace $2,500 for each hour blocking the port. in a statement, shell oil says "we are pleased with today's court ruling that holds greenpeace in contempt and prescribes fines for further non compliance." the dangling protesters say their human barricade may be gone but their campaign goes on. this stunt spotlighting oil drilling got national attention. they say that's exactly what they wanted. reena and ryan? >> thanks so much, brandi. there are now more than 14 major wildfires in california,
2:07 am
mostly in the northern part of the state. one of the largest is the rocky fire northeast of sacramento. it's now consumed more than 8,500 acres and destroyed at least three homes. hundreds of people have been evacuated. the blaze only 5% contained. more than 7,000 firefighters statewide are battling these wildfires. it was the opposite problem on the opposite coast. a severe storm pummeled the new york city area. it uprooted trees, knocked down power lines and caused some flash flooding. there was also a three-hour rain delay at the mets/padres games after the mets had coughed up a six-run lead. more hot weather today in both the northeast and the northwest. the heat wave lingers from nevada to washington state in the fire zone. and it's also the hottest july on record in seattle. flash floods in part of the southwest. heavy rain from the gulf coast to the carolinas. >> a sweltering 101 in portland. 90s in seattle, new york and memphis. 80s in chicago, l.a. and detroit. well the historic seattle home known as the "up" house, like the one in the pixar movie,

fire crews had to use their fire crews had to use their heavy equipment to rescue eight people who got stuck on a ride for nearly two hours at the indianapolis zoo. two cars on the skyline ride suddenly stopped in midair and wouldn't start again. all of the riders including three children, made it down safely. this is actually the second time this summer this ride has run into mechanical problems. >> that's my big fear getting stuck up on one of those. well the trouble is far from over for that american dentist who shot and killed a beloved lion in zimbabwe. >> calls are growing for extradition charges for him to
2:14 am
return to africa to face poaching charges, but he's nowhere to be found. abc's david wright reports the hunter has now become the hunted. >> reporter: the outrage at this minnesota dentist for killing cecil the lion made it all the way to the white house. this petition calling for the u.s. to extradite walter palmer well over the 100,000 signatures required. >> there will be a forthcoming white house response. >> reporter: the u.s. fish and wildlife service is launching its own investigation. officials say they've made repeated attempts to reach him. >> justice for cecil! >> reporter: he's not at his office in minnesota or at his home or even at his vacation home in florida. even there, signs of protestors hunting him down. >> walter palmer is one of thousands of americans who do globetrotting safari hunting exercises, and we should really shame these people. >> reporter: trophy hunters kill about 600 african lions every year, and two-thirds of the trophies end up right here in america. animal rights advocates hope the outrage at this dentist will bring greater protection for the lions.
2:15 am
david wright, abc news, new york. >> you know oxford university has this very big unit that focuses on conservation looking at the lions. and when jimmy kimmel -- you may remember he broke down. we showed this video yesterday talking about cecil. they have actually now raised $150,000. pretty incredible for oxford university. >> that's a great effect of this real tragedy here. you know the british paper, "the telegraph," reported that palmer actually wanted to go after an elephant couldn't find one, and that's how he -- or couldn't find one big enough really and ended up killing this lion. so, there's going to be so much outrage coming from this against these so-called trophy hunters to say this can't happen. we've got to issue stronger permits or at least something that restricts people from killing wildlife out there. >> okay. >> came from all this. and when we come back, the a-lister firing back on twitter in court. and oprah like you've never seen her before.

2:18 am
>> there's a reason they might come after you, as is the case with james woods yesterday. he filed a lawsuit against an anonymous twitter user for $10 million. >> now despite making a career out of playing criminals and low lives, woods is going after the twitter user known as "abelist" for invasion of privacy. it stems from a series of tweets alleging woods uses cocaine, but it also refers to the oscar-nominated actor as a "joke, ridiculous" and "clown boy." >> woods obviously doesn't think it's funny. in the complaint, it says "al, and anyone else using social media to propagate lies and do harm should take note. they are not impervious to the law." what do you think? can you go after someone you don't know who is nameless and faceless? >> no, he's got to the subpoena the internet service provider first. that's not easy to do to try to get them to hand that over. sometimes maybe they will. a lot of times they'll try to quash the subpoena. and then if you can force them to give it up then you can get that name. but james woods has a different problem.
2:19 am
he's a public figure. so for defamation claims, the bar is pretty high for him to win. in a sense, the law sometimes says when you're a public figure you're putting yourself out there in a way that you're going to get this kind of negative attention, and that doesn't have the same standard as it would have for a private citizen. >> even if they feel their name is being tarnished. >> well they can fight it. and stars have fought it and won it before, so we'll see if he can win it. but he's got to get to the point where his case will stand up in court before he can get to the subpoena stage. so, we'll see. >> we'll be watching that one. how about we move on to a creative new spread for "harpers bazaar" magazine. some iconic women with incredible new photos. >> this is kind of great. starting with andy warhol's pop art photograph of elizabeth taylor, the iconic image now getting a makeover by another famous brunette. >> can you guess? who is it? not -- >> wait a second is it reena ninan? >> what? no. >> are you sure? oh, that's katy perry! wait a second. she's made up as the silver screen star. that's great.

2:47 am
messages? are they ever completely gone? the answer depends. two phone companies tell us they keep records of the messages which for some includes date, time and phone number. and one attorney who has dealt with this issue, phone carriers typically only preserve the content of text messages for three to five days. >> if someone destroys his cell phone and the cell phone carrier's records are subpoenaed, all the records will show is that a text was sent from one phone to another. >> reporter: gio benitez, abc news, new york. >> so why couldn't he have just deleted the information on the phone? why -- >> the other thing is, isn't it all in the cloud? well i think what he did here was he probably wiped the phone, and then the phone itself what am i going to do with this? so he had somebody destroy it maybe as a preventive measure. but you could still contact the phone company, as you heard janet johnson mention there, but they only keep the information for a couple of days and by the point he let everybody know about it, it was months later. now, for tom brady, he has said

he turned over a lot of what they asked for, so there's a lot of he said-she said in that story. >> not the end yet. >> not at all. coming up, field of tears. >> hmm. baseball player letting his emotions get the best of him on the field, but the fans were more forgiving than you might think. you're watching "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this when i have an asthma attack... i feel scared. sometimes my parents have to take me to the hospital. i feel like a fish with no water. you know how to react to their asthma attacks. here's how to prevent them. call... visit... or call your doctor. because...

david wright, abc news, new york. >> you know, oxford university has this very big unit that focuses on conservation, looking at the lions. and when jimmy kimmel -- you may remember, he broke down. we showed this video yesterday, talking about cecil. they have actually now raised $150,000, pretty incredible, for oxford university. >> that's a great effect of this real tragedy here. you know, the british paper, "the telegraph," reported that palmer actually wanted to go after an elephant, couldn't find one, and that's how he -- or couldn't find one big enough, really, and ended up killing this lion. so, there's going to be so much outrage coming from this against these so-called trophy hunters to say this can't happen. we've got to issue stronger permits or at least something that restricts people from killing wildlife out there. >> okay. >> came from all this. and when we come back, the a-lister firing back on twitter in court. and oprah like you've never seen her before. "the skinny" coming up next.

with actor james woods. yesterday he filed a lawsuit against an anonymous twitter user for $10 million. >> now despite making a career out of playing criminals and low-lives, woods is going after the twitter user known as abelist for defamation as well as invasion of privacy. it stems from a series of tweets alleging woods uses cocaine, but it also refers to the oscar-nominated actor as a "joke," "ridiculous," and "clown boy." >> woods, obviously, doesn't think it's funny. in the complaint, it says "al, and anyone else using social media to propagate lies and do harm, should take note. they are not impervious to the law." what do you think? can you go after someone you don't know who is nameless and faceless? >> no, he's got to the subpoena the internet service provider first. that's not easy to do to get them to try to hand that over. sometimes maybe they will. a lot of times they'll try to quash the subpoena. and then, if you can force them to give it up, then you can get that name. but james woods has a different problem.
3:49 am
he's a public figure. so for defamation claims, the bar is pretty high for him to win. in a sense, the law sometimes says when you're a public figure, you're putting yourself out there in a way that you're going to get this kind of negative attention, and that doesn't have the same standard as it would have for a private citizen. >> even if they feel their name is being tarnished. >> well, they can fight it. and stars have fought it and won it before, so we'll see if he can win it. but he's got to at least get to the point where his case will stand up in court before he can even get to the subpoena stage, so we'll see. >> we'll be watching that one. how about we move on to a creative new spread for "harpers bazaar" magazine? it has some mashed up very iconic women with some incredible, new photos. >> this is kind of great. starting with andy warhol's pop art photograph of elizabeth taylor. the iconic image now getting a makeover by another famous brunette. >> can you guess? who is it? not -- >> wait a second, is it reena ninan? >> what? no. >> are you sure? oh, that's katy perry! wait a second. she's made up as the silver screen star. that's great. >> how about this woman?
