A lawsuit over the ownership of the Westport waterfront that was dismissed last month by a bankruptcy judge will be re-filed in a different court, an attorney for real estate developer Patrick Turner said Monday. Kenneth B. Frank said the suit against potential investors, alleging they conspired to gain control of a 43-acre waterfront in southwest Baltimore, will soon be filed in federal district court. Frank, who represents Turner, his partner Thomas B. Fore and their Westport-related companies, said Judge Robert A. Gordon determined bankruptcy court was not an appropriate venue for the suit.

An Anne Arundel County judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit brought by supporters of gubernatorial candidate Douglas F. Gansler who wanted to prevent his Democratic rivals from raising money during the General Assembly session. Judge William C. Mulford II dismissed the case — at the request of the lawyer for the Gansler supporters. Attorney Daniel Clements said his clients got what they wanted out of the case: a promise from Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown that his running mate, Ken Ulman, wouldn't raise money during the session.

The family of a Howard County student has filed a $10 million federal lawsuit against several officials in the school system, alleging that administrators failed to protect the student from bullying that led to his suffering from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on Tuesday, alleges that in December 2007, officials at Patapsco Middle School in Ellicott City failed to protect the student's rights to due process and equal protection by not intervening in "serious episodes of student-on-student violence" by a group of five students.

Opponents of the $1.5 billion State Center project asked a Circuit Court judge Wednesday to dismiss the state's legal action against them, arguing that they have a First Amendment right to go to court to protest plans to redevelop the aging government office complex in midtown Baltimore. More than two hours of arguments by attorneys from both sides ended without a decision by Baltimore Circuit Judge Althea M. Handy. "We're allowed to object, and we're allowed to say we don't like your project," Alan M. Rifkin, an attorney for the redevelopment's opponents, said in his arguments.

NEW YORK -- Knicks guard Stephon Marbury testified yesterday in the case of a fired team executive who has accused coach Isiah Thomas of sexual harassment, calling the lawsuit absurd while downplaying an encounter with a drunken intern. After hearing about the lawsuit brought by Anucha Browne Sanders, "I laughed," Marbury said in U.S. District Court. "It was more of a joke than anything." Browne Sanders says she is owed her vice president position back and at least $10 million for enduring a sexually harassing workplace for five years.
