A state judge has thrown out a lawsuit that seven current and former Princeton police officers brought against former police Chief David J. Dudeck and the town of Princeton.

Officials said the decision, handed down by Judge Darlene J. Pereksta on July 14, leaves open the door for the lawsuit to be reinstated at a later date. The Princeton Council was due to be briefed on the litigation in closed session Monday night.

University should note Palmer's contributions
Joseph Burns, Princeton I found Pam Hersh's article about Edgar Palmer in the 4/18/14 issue of The Princeton Packet to be of considerable interest. Much of the article focuses on architect Jerry Ford's discussion of Palmer. Ford indicates that ''Palmer created this bizarre competition between himself and Moses Tayor Pyne,'' with Pyne being a huge benefactor of Princeton University and Palmer transforming downtown Princeton into a ''sustainable and viable entity.''

I was among the 24,000 attendees who trolled the aisles, perusing and sampling some of the approximately 180,000 products that fall into the category of ''specialty foods'' - everything from cheese, chocolate, and condiments to snacks, spices, and sauces.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS: Waiters' Race returns to Palmer Square in July
Fun surprises I grew up in a little fishing village on the tip of Long Island, except when tourist season came, when it seemed more like it was a part of the sixth borough of New York City. Anyway, I admit that I'm a seafood snob. Fresh fish to me means you go to the dock and buy it off the boat. So nobody was more shocked than me when I found myself having the best grilled tuna sandwich, ever, at Blue Point Grill on Nassau Street in Princeton. It was terrific. So, of course, I stopped into their fish market next store afterwards. It is full of fresh seafood like I remember as a kid and it also has some very unexpected surprises, like fresh local produce. Blue Point Grill is at 258 Nassau St. in Princeton. Read more...
