    Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Seamus McCaffery has dropped his defamation lawsuit against the Inquirer and Daily News, the Legal Intelligencer reported Tuesday night.  As part of the settlement agreement, the newspapers agreed to report on a statement issued Tuesday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania that said the office and the FBI closed their investigation of McCaffery and Rapaport, finding no criminal charges should be filed. “The United States Attorney’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted an investigation with respect…

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A hearing is set for Thursday in Delaware in a dispute between Donald and Ivanka Trump and the casino company he once ran, over whether Atlantic City’s struggling Taj Mahal casino can continue to use the Trump name. The Trumps are suing Trump Entertainment Resorts in state court in New Jersey, seeking to have the Trump name stripped from the Taj Mahal. But a federal bankruptcy case has put a temporary halt to that litigation, and the Trumps want to let the lawsuit proceed. The real estate mogul and his daughter claim that Trump Entertainment, with which…

  • Tom Corbett Signs Anti-Mumia “Revictimizing” Bill

    21 Oct 2014 | 10:52 am
    At the site where Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner was shot and killed in 1981, Gov. Tom Corbett today signed a bill today that would let crime victims sue convicts for seeking publicity or money. The bill is a direct response to Mumia Abu-Jamal, giving a graduation speech at Goddard College earlier this month. Even people with only a cursory understanding of the legal system can guess this bill is on incredibly shaky footing — two lawyer friends of mine called it “laughably unconstitutional” — and will end up in the courts sooner rather than later. Last week Joel…
  • Another Violent Incident at Northeast Philly Pathmark

    21 Oct 2014 | 9:22 am
    Earlier this month, a man was stabbed in a Northeast Philly Pathmark after an argument with another man. Now, the supermarket has been the site of a second attack. Police say a woman ran into the Pathmark screaming after she was assaulted by a 19-year-old man on Monday. The man followed her into the store, where he was cornered by shoppers until police arrived. This is in contrast to the previous incident at the store, where shoppers continued to shop and appeared uncaring that someone was just stabbed in an aisle. NBC 10 reported that “one customer even asked a responding officer to…

    By Walt Hunter PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Dirt bikes and ATVs careened at high speed through Philadelphia streets for nearly three hours Tuesday afternoon, part, police say, of a memorial for a 23-year-old dirt bike rider who was gunned down on a Southwest Philadelphia street one week ago. Chopper 3 showed dozens of riders racing across sidewalks and in the wrong traffic lanes, as they roared at high speed through virtually every Philadelphia neighborhood. Performing stunts, as pedestrians and drivers scrambled to stay out of their way, the bikers stopped around 5:30 p.m. at a memorial site…

Jason Kelce, Mychal Kendricks, Chris Polk and Darren Sproles were all back on the field with a game at Arizona looming on Sunday.  While there are no guarantees that all of the injured players will be back on Sunday, Quarterback Nick Foles was happy to see so many familiar faces back at practice. “Just getting guys back is always great,” said Foles.  “They’ve been approaching every single day…

The graffiti-style mural was blanked out on Monday at the direction of the Trenton Downtown Association. Condry and fellow artist Byron “Black Collar Biz” Marshall from the SAGE Coalition…

Pro-Football, several trademark registrations associated with the Washington Redskins football team. The basis for canceling the six registrations was that the registered marks are disparaging to American Indians.

  • Another Painful Year For Philadelphia Eagles Fans

    26 Sep 2014 | 12:31 pm
    The Eagles finished last year’s season with a 10-6 record and part of that success was the fantastic play of quarterback Nick Foles. A third round pick in the 2012 Draft, Foles completed 64 percent of his passes, posted 9.1 YPA and an astounding 27 to 2 touchdown to interception ratio. It’s hard to imagine Foles repeating that kind of performance as the Eagles will have a tougher schedule this year. Plus, he’ll be a target for opposing defenses that  will have the entire offseason dissecting coach Chip Kelly’s offense.  Plus, he’ll have to play without…

    First Down Friday Evening football fans, Week one of the NFL season is in the books and week two is on deck.  We’ve already seen the Packers vindicate themselves on Thursday night football after their week one loss, but this definitely doesn’t look like the 15-1 team from 2011 or the Super Bowl team from 2010.  Everyone had high expectations for the Bears after some offseason upgrades (Brandon Marshall & Michael Bush), and they seemed to justify those expectation with a week one drubbing of the Colts 41-21.  But last night’s game seemed to foreshadow the…

    I simply cannot wait for football to start. I’m been diving into preseason film, tearing through roster moves, and keeping myself awake at night pondering the possibilities of the 2012 season. Since the season kicks off with the Cowboys and Giants Wednesday night on NBC, let’s get right into my season predictions for the National Football Conference! As a preface, let me just say that this entire process is weird. I’ve looked a decent amount of schedules, but these records (which, when all totaled with the AFC, will equal out correctly) are more akin to indications of how…

    The second day of free agency may not have been as fast and furious as the first, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t plenty of headlines made. Let’s get right into the news of the day!-News flash: Calvin Johnson is pretty damn good. And now he’s pretty damn rich, signing the richest contract in NFL history on Wednesday. The extension, which tweaks the final year of his previous deal, adds seven more with a dollar value of $132 million. Johnson may not be actually “worth” the money, but the Lions couldn’t afford not to lock him down for the long term.

    Hugh Hefner is one of those rare individuals that appears to exist in a universe all his own. Sure, there’s the physical “universe” of the Mansion, the Bunnies, and the never-ending party that is Playboy, but there’s also something much deeper. Hefner has made a career out of the sort of images that you wouldn’t want your boss, girlfriend, mother, or fellow straphanger to catch you looking at, and yet, Hef still manages to come across as a gentleman at every turn. Of course, there is something slightly off about a nearly-ninety year old man that wears robes in public and is married…
