BUILDING CONTRACTOR FACES MURDER CHARGES IN DEMOLITION LEADING TO BUILDING COLLAPSE THAT KILLED 6 IN PHILADELPHIA

GOV. TOM CORBETT SIGNS $2.3 BILLION TRANSPORTATION BILL THAT RAISES GASOLINE TAXES AND MOTORIST FEES

PHILADELPHIA COUPLE SET FOR SENTENCING IN STARVATION DEATH OF 6-YEAR-OLD WHO WEIGHED JUST 29 POUNDS

WOMAN WHO SUED LEHIGH UNIVERSITY OVER C-PLUS GRADE LOSES BID FOR NEW TRIAL
A Northampton County judge says Megan Thode doesn’t deserve a new trial. She wanted the grade raised to a B and sought $1.3 million in damages, claiming a professor in a 2009 graduate-level therapist internship course retaliated against her over her support of gay marriage. She says the grade kept her from being a licensed therapist; the school says she earned the grade she got.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES, STORM WARNINGS ISSUED AS WINTRY MIX MOVES INTO PENNSYLVANIA
