Forty years ago, a lawyer fresh out of law school filed a lawsuit against the NYPD. That lawsuit continues to be fought by the city. (City Room)

Looks like the battle between bloggers and traditional media is heating up! Yesterday, the Schools Chancellor had to break up a fight between a blogger and TV reporter at City Hall. (Daily Politics)
