New York attorney Peter Ginsberg has represented several high-profile professional athletes - such as NFL stars Michael Irvin and Jonathan Vilma, as well as PGA Tour player Vijay Singh - in defamation lawsuits. But he has also taken on cases that weren't in the headlines. A recurring theme to his interest in those cases, Ginsberg said Wednesday, is when he believes strongly that someone has been victimized. That was the biggest reason why Ginsberg agreed to represent Maryland basketball player Dez Wells in his lawsuit against Xavier, Wells' former school.

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.

More than two hours of arguments by attorneys from both sides ended without a decision by Baltimore Circuit Judge Althea M. Handy.

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge ruled Monday that a lawsuit can go forward against Morgan State University that contends the school failed to protect Joshua Ceasar, who was brutally beaten last year by an electrical engineering student who previously showed signs of violence and mental instability. The student, Alexander Kinyua, 22, was later accused of murder and cannibalism in the death of a family friend. Judge Videtta A. Brown found that there was potential for "foreseeability" on the part of the school that "something bad was going to happen," said Steven D. Silverman, Caesar's attorney.
