Logo fight: N&D vs. N&D

From the complaint.

A subsidiary of the Dedham's Norfolk & Dedham Group that has a program to offer gift cards to safe drivers called N&Drive, says the last thing it needs is to be associated with party buses, so it's suing N&D Night Out of Easton, which offers party buses and vans, to try to force that company to change its name.

The MBTA reports all service to Foxborough canceled under further notice because the driver of a truck hauling a trash compactor managed to slam his rig into a bridge in Dedham, hard enough to require track repairs. Here's hoping they get it fixed before Friday's Taylor Swift show at Gillette, because you don't want to get Swifties mad.
