A federal judge ruled Atlantic City must pay nearly $679,000 to cover legal fees for Steven Stadler, who was beaten by police officers after he robbed a car wash on Albany Avenue.

Stadler’s lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, told the Press of AC, “I don’t charge my client, and getting paid is contingent on winning these cases. So when I win, you better believe I’m going to come after every penny I’m entitled to.”

She has three more cases against the ACPD in the pipeline.

They may be “trendlets” or “dead cat bounces.” We keep using this word “trend” in other words, but we’re not so sure it means what you think it means.

The Ventnor Planning Board is considering zoning changes in the St. Leonard’s Tract. Nanette LoBiondo is on that story, you better believe.
