FIFA's ethics judges are aiming to decide the fate of suspended president Sepp Blatter by the end of December, following an investigation into graft allegations. Blatter, who has been at the head of FIFA since 1998, faces criminal investigation in Switzerland over a 2 million Swiss franc ($1.96 million) payment from FIFA to European soccer boss Michel Platini. Both men have denied wrongdoing. Pictured: British comedian Lee Nelson (unseen) throws banknotes at FIFA President Sepp Blatter as he arrives for a news conference at the FIFA headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland, July 20, 2015.

The World Anti-Doping Agency commission in November alleged that Russian athletes have systematically used performance-enhancing substances and recommended Russia be suspended from international competition. The report recommended lifetime bans for five athletes, four coaches and one doctor, all Russian, including the women's 800 meters Olympic champion Mariya Savinova. If endorsed by the International Athletics Federation (IAAF), the proposal could see Russian athletes excluded from next year's Olympic games in Brazil.

Volkswagen admitted in September it had rigged U.S. nitrogen oxides emissions tests. Auto analysts say the company could face a bill as high as 35 billion euros ($38 billion) for fines, lawsuits and vehicle refits. Volkswagen has declined to comment on whether the firm's culture or the management style of former chief executive Martin Winterkorn, who resigned in September, had been a factor in the cheating.

A landmark nuclear pact between the United States, Iran and five other world powers was announced in July, capping more than a decade of negotiations with an agreement that could transform the Middle East. Under the deal, sanctions imposed against Iran will be lifted in return for Iran agreeing to long-term curbs on their nuclear program. In September, U.S. Senate Democrats blocked legislation meant to kill the deal for a third time, securing perhaps the greatest foreign policy win of President Obama's six years in office and clearing the way to implement the accord. Pictured: Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif (C on left) and head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi (C on right) talk outside with aides after a morning negotiation session with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry over Iran's nuclear program in Lausanne, Switzerland, March 19, 2015.

The lead petitioner was James Obergefell, who wanted his home state of Ohio, which bans gay marriage, to recognize his Maryland marriage to John Arthur as Arthur was dying from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
