Lawyers for Baltimore businessman Glenn Weinberg told a jury Friday he missed out on making millions of dollars from the Maryland Live casino when he retired early after being wrongly told he had severely blocked heart arteries. But attorneys for former St. Joseph Medical Center cardiologist Mark Midei said Weinberg quit working at the Cordish Co. development firm because he didn't like his job and would not have been guaranteed a big payout from the Cordish-owned casino even if he had stayed.

A string of acquittals for a man accused of raping several Baltimore women has renewed a debate over whether the law should be changed to help prosecutors secure sex offense convictions. Nelson Bernard Clifford, 35, has been cleared in four trials in Baltimore City Circuit Court since 2011. Each time his accusers have testified, but Clifford has said in court that all his encounters were consensual. Prosecutors have attempted in various ways to show juries a pattern, but have been stymied by city judges, who have rejected attempts by prosecutors to join separate cases together, or to call witnesses to testify about assaults other than the one being tried.

A prominent Baltimore businessman said he lost millions of dollars when he chose to retire early after being led to believe he suffered from severe coronary disease. Glenn Weinberg, a former partner of the Baltimore-based Cordish Co., said he retired after three stents were placed in his heart at St. Joseph Medical Center by former cardiologist Mark Midei. But attorneys for Midei and the hospital's former owners said the stents were necessary and meant to improve the plaintiff's health so he could carry on normal activities, such as his career.

Former cardiologist Mark Midei improperly placed three stents in the heart of a prominent businessman who didn't need them, a Baltimore County jury ruled Wednesday in a malpractice case. The jury also found the former owners of St. Joseph Medical Center partly responsible because Midei appeared to be its representative, which means that the penalty phase of the trial can go forward to determine how much both defendants should pay. The lawsuit seeks $150 million in damages, including from lost income and emotional distress.

A federal jury in Greenbelt convicted a Baltimore contractor on Wednesday of ordering the killing of a witness against him in a series of theft cases, rendering a swift verdict after a man wrongfully convicted of the death was cleared. Prosecutors said contractor Jose Morales coordinated by phone with the gunman who shot Robert Long, an employee at Morales' construction company, twice in the head at close range in March 2008. Baltimore police had arrested Demetrius Smith on the theory that he and Long had a dispute over drugs.

In November 2006, Glenn Weinberg appeared a healthy and hearty 50-year-old, who exercised regularly and was fully engaged in the competitive world of real estate development as a partner of the Baltimore-based Cordish Co. But he scaled everything back after a cardiologist - Dr. Mark Midei - falsely led him to believe he had severe coronary artery disease and placed three expensive stents in his body that month, according to a lawsuit filed in...

Despite numerous marriage equality-related cases currently making their way through the judicial system, it's somehow the hot-button area of antitrust law where an important LGBT rights issue is taking place.

The Baltimore City Council is scheduled to hold at least preliminary debate on $107 million in tax increment financing for the Harbor Point development today, and whenever the final vote occurs, the outcome is not much in doubt.  Despite an unusual amount of public criticism of the city's support for this project, there has in fact been little question that it would be approved since the mayor stood with the City Council president to endorse the deal months ago. Is it a good thing for the city?

Jurors are expected to begin deliberating Monday whether Karla Porter is guilty of premeditated murder for hiring a man to kill her husband, or of a lesser charge because she was acting in self-defense. Porter, 51, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her husband of 24 years, William "Ray" Porter. He was shot to death March 1, 2010, at the Towson gas station he owned after prosecutors said his wife offered to pay an Essex man $9,000. The hit man, William Bishop, was previously convicted in the murder and is serving a life sentence.
