A federal judge earlier this month dismissed a lawsuit by six Boston University students over what they claimed was the inferior education they got after the school shifted to online classes as the pandemic erupted in the spring of 2020, in part because there was no way that BU could have foreseen a global pandemic would effectively shut down the entire state.

Citizens Bank this week sued the armored-car company that shuttles money to and from its branches and ATMs to make the company keep doing that until the bank can fully replace it.

In its suit, filed in US District Court in Boston, Citizens said Garda Atlantic had threatened to stop all its service today, a move that would have left "thousands of individuals and small businesses" unfairly without access to their money.

More than a year after local real estate agents tried to pressure Winchester into taking action against freight trains, residents clamored for action at community meetings. It was claimed that noise during freight operations violated a local noise ordinance and Massachusetts law. Nearly a month ago, the town's zoning board ruled in favor of the residents and a cease and desist was handed to Pan Am Railways.

In response, Pan Am filed with the Surface Transportation Board, stating that they are subject only to federal law in this case. Shortly after, on July 12, CSX Transportation, Norfolk Southern Railways, Housatonic Railroad, and the Massachusetts Railroad Association (which represents nine railroads within Massachusetts collectively) made a motion to participate in the STB filing.

CommonWealth magazine came across an interesting lawsuit involving the Boston Public Library and Maryanne Lewis, a lawyer-lobbyist and former state representative who is considering a run as an independent for Congress. The BPL says Lewis was improperly awarded a secret consulting contract by its former president, Bernard Margolis, and that Lewis never performed any consulting or legal services. Lewis says she did the "government relations consulting services" she was hired to do and wants the $32,000 she is still owed on her contract. The BPL is not only refusing to pay but demanding the $46,000 Lewis has already pocketed.
