NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Rodriguez's lawyers want to keep a lid on potential video of him being questioned in his lawsuit against a New York Yankees team doctor.

A Bronx judge suggested Tuesday that both sides agree not to disseminate any such video without court input. There's no pact as yet.

Rodriguez says Dr. Christopher Ahmad didn't tell him of October 2012 MRI results showing a left hip joint tear. Rodriguez says he therefore kept playing and worsened the injury.

Depositions, or pretrial questioning under oath, are customary. They're often not made public before trial.

Rodriguez's lawyer Alan Ripka says his client wants to avoid leaks of video of him answering potentially sensitive medical questions.

Ahmad lawyer Peter Crean says he doesn't intend to release it but Rodriguez's fame shouldn't mean special protections.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
