A simmering argument between two servers at the BWI Hilton Hotel erupted into a high-speed chase that ended when one server was shot and nearly killed by the other's boyfriend, a Baltimore prosecutor told jurors during opening statements Monday. Describing it as a "wild ride" from the hotel along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and into the city, prosecutor Patrick Moran said the incident was rooted in a dispute over a cart the servers used to clean after events. On the night of Oct. 24, 2007, server Sean Levy, 19, left the hotel with another co-worker, thinking the argument had been resolved, but Moran said the other server, Keya Gardner, chased after him in her car, with her boyfriend in another car. Thinking he was safe, Levy dropped off a co-worker at his Baltimore home.

Brian Weese neither ponders nor brags about his achievements; he speaks plainly, as if it's natural for great risks to reap hefty rewards, for a man to fulfill his professional dream, then fulfill another and another.It is natural in Brian Weese's life.He's confident, even relaxed during a conversation in his Pikesville mega-bookstore, Bibelot. Though he's about to open two more of his book/music stores, there's no hint of frenzy or panic. Surrounded by the blond wood and piped-in jazz that make Bibelot so conducive to browsing, Weese, 40, is only tense when forced to smile for a camera.

On a Sunday afternoon last November, Bibelot bookstore in Timonium served up a literary feast. Nearly 1,000 people squeezed between the rows of shelves and nibbled lemon bars and raspberry cheesecake as they elbowed their way to the grilled lamb chops buffet and chatted with the dozens of authors autographing their books. Mystery writer Tim Cockey inscribed "The Hearse You Came in On." Twig George signed her children's tale, "Swimming with Sharks." A pianist played show tunes, and a jazz quartet greeted ticket-holders on their way in to the literacy fund-raiser.

Brian D. and Elizabeth G. Weese, former owners of the now-defunct, Baltimore-area Bibelot bookstore chain, have reached a $13 million settlement with creditors who had accused the couple of fraudulently transferring nearly $20 million to an offshore trust fund. The settlement puts an end to several lawsuits against the couple in which creditors were seeking to recover at least $17.5 million owed after the once-popular bookseller filed for bankruptcy in March 2001. Bank of America NA, the Weeses' largest creditor, gets $10 million of its more than $15 million claim, the trustee overseeing couple's personal bankruptcy case said yesterday.

A deal to settle millions of dollars in lawsuits against Brian D. and Elizabeth G. Weese, who owned the defunct Bibelot bookstore chain, has unraveled, forcing a trial in the couple's personal bankruptcy case to go forward. But because the Weeses and two of their biggest creditors had expected to complete the $12.7 million settlement, the trustee overseeing the personal bankruptcy case said he is not ready for trial and plans to ask for a postponement. The trial, which is still on the calendar to start Monday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Baltimore, was scheduled after trustee Irving E. Walker filed a lawsuit in June last year asking the court to order millions of dollars of the Weeses' assets returned to the United States from an offshore trust in the Cook Islands.

The trustee overseeing the personal bankruptcy case of the defunct Bibelot bookstore chain's owners has asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Baltimore to order millions of dollars in assets returned to the United States from an offshore trust in the Cook Islands. In his first major move since being named trustee April 10, attorney Irving E. Walker asked the court to declare assets that Brian D. and Elizabeth G. Weese moved to an offshore trust part of the bankruptcy estate and order several people connected with the trust to return its assets.
