     The DA’s response to the County’s Request to Intervene in the Public Records dispute over civil forfeiture is now posted on the Prothontary’s site and you can read it in full here.

*     Judge Leonard Brown III reversed the Manheim Township student’s expulsion, citing the district’s lack of substantial evidence, in a decision filed last week in the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas.
From today’s LNP article, “Penn Manor superintendent criticizes judge’s reversal of Manheim Township High School student’s expulsion,” (click here).    



Judge Leonard G. Brown III

      The civil forfeiture legal battle between LNP and DA Craig Stedman is before Lancaster County Judge Leonard G. Brown, III. Brown is one of the few judges that did not come from the DA’s office; he was previously a defense attorney.
      Brown is also presiding over the case of Penn Live and LNP seeking autopsy records from the County of Lancaster. A hearing in that Open Records case is scheduled for March 14 at 10:00 am in chambers #2 (see below).

Please check back later today.

    Did the DA need his vehicle when Scott Martins Sister who was high on heroine killed 2 people, injured 3, and was helped in charging an innocent man with the crime. The corruption and the idea that these politicians feel they ate are above the law must come to an end. What kind of example are these criminals to the next generation.

  2. huh? says:

    Stedman is fighting a battle that has already been lost elsewhere. Tying it up in court is merely a delaying tactic. Don’t be surprised if it goes up the chain of courts. If the election isn’t until November he’s doing all of this without a dime leaving his pocket. And if the other side prevails, and asks for court costs, the taxpayers still end up footing the bill. Considering that he was already ruled against, it sucks that he has deep taxpayer pockets.

  3. WTF? says:

    Decision also seems to perfectly set the table for the indigent who remain confined purely because they’re unable to make nominal bail. Go IJ, always been a fan.

  4. WTF? says:

    Hopefully judge Brown will read the recent ( February 28) SCOTUS decision
    Timbs v. Indiana. Not on point as to the rtk request but good background material as to civil asset forfeiture laws and the constituionally applied limits.

    I, for one, don’t give a FF what the Penn Manor stuporintendant thinks about a judge’s ruling in a case that affects one student in another school district. That’s called grandstanding and the media is irresponsible to give him a platform. Go bitch to your golf buddies, pal.

    I believe your stalker is being encouraged and financed (his anti Becky website, for e.g.) BY law enforcement. Nobody wastes that much time for free OR exhibits such obvious criminal behavior – when they have already been convicted for the SAME criminal behavior – without somebody in charge telling them it is perfectly o.k. and there will be no negative consequences.

    We residents know that you may not even staple a flyer to a pole and this guy shows up and just starts hooking up equipment to PPL poles. Why did the city NOT inform him that he can’t do this? How much of our tax dollars are paying for this frivolous lawsuit? Such arrogance!

  8. A NON says:

    I see you are censoring comments that mock you. Interesting since you recently let one go on another post that outright called another poster a very bad name….but their overall comment agreed with your position, so…..right…..

    I see you…

      A NON – I believe your comment and his comment and my comment (after taking his down) all came in at once. He is a very sick, perverted individual who is a convicted stalker and has done this to different people for over 15 years. Now, I’m done with this nonsense!

    I see that Tom Knapp wrote a nice tribute to Steve on the comments section. Much respect to Tom. That can’t be easy to do for him on ‘that’ website.

    • Becky says:

      If anyone saw the comment that was briefly posted here about a “boob that does this trash rag” – that was serial stalker Steve Markle who slipped past me for a few minutes. That is his third comment in today. This is a middle-aged man who in the last seven years has sent over 2000 comments to this site all saying the same thing (you don’t live here) and they don’t get posted because he uses proxy servers and is quickly identified (I don’t think I have any readers in Moldavia)! It is impossible to even imagine how obsessed and mentally ill he is.

    I always wished that the cause of the fire had been figured out. Steve was a really good guy for sure. I think of him as a great example of how a good city grows from hometown invested businesses

    Don’t know if you saw this. Steve Murray has passed away. He owned Zap store and was rescued from the fire there a few years ago.

    • Becky says:

      I didn’t know! He was at a city council meeting not that long ago and spoke about how firefighters saved his life.
