A Pennsylvania woman who was raped in the parking lot of the popular Ocean City club Seacrets in 2008 has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that the club's security staff left her vulnerable to the attack. The woman, who was 25 at the time, is seeking at least $1 million, according to court records. The attack occurred in the early hours of May 24, 2008, when the woman went outside the mega club to make a phone call and left her purse inside with her friends. When she tried to get back inside, club staff told her she was being ejected for being too intoxicated and would not let her find her friends to get her purse, which contained her hotel room key, according to the court filings.

For nearly 30 years, the Port Welcome supplied plenty of memories for Baltimoreans who jammed its decks for proms, class trips, office parties, bar mitzvahs, moonlights, and cruises to Betterton, Tolchester and Annapolis. While not the most attractive-looking vessel ever to ply the Chesapeake Bay, the Port Welcome enjoyed years of popularity since its 1959 christening by Maryland first lady Helen Avalynne Tawes. It was built by R.T.C. Shipbuilding Corp. in Camden, N.J., for the Maryland Port Authority, which used it for promotional activities.
