Fairfax Savings Bank has quietly settled a punitive damages claim with the developers of a Westminster shopping center who claimed that the Baltimore thrift and its downtown law firm committed fraud in a real estate deal.The developers' lawsuit had sparked an embarrassing showdown this summer with Fairfax's longtime law firm, Weinberg and Green.Terms of the punitive damages settlement were not disclosed. But they come in addition to $7.5 million in compensation to the developers -- $2.65 million for their emotional distress, plus cancellation of the developers' $4.85 million debt to Fairfax -- awarded earlier by a trial jury.

State police say three people found dead Tuesday in a single-vehicle crash along a southbound ramp from Interstate 83 onto I-695 in Baltimore County had likely been there since early Sunday morning. Police said the crash site wasn't discovered for two days because it was far from the roadway and hidden by trees and brush. When a driver reported seeing something that looked like a vehicle in the woods Tuesday, police responded and found pieces of the car and the bodies of the three men. The discovery prompted an investigation that closed ramps at southbound I-83 onto the outer loop of the Beltway for more than six hours, from late afternoon into the evening.

FAIRFAX, Va. -- After being evicted from his apartment last year, Larry Chaney lived in his car for five months in Erie, Pa. As he passed the time at local cafes, he always put a ring of old house keys and several envelopes with bills on the table to give the impression that he had a home like everyone else. While Michelle Kennedy was living in her car with her three children in Belfast, Maine, she parked someplace different each night so no one would notice them, and she instructed the children to tell anyone who asked that they were "staying with friends."
