Judge found guilty of scratching car Minneapolis (AP)—A Hennepin County judge has been found guilty of third-degree criminal property damage for scratching another motorist’s car with his keys during a parking lot dispute. Harvey Ginsberg, 51, of St. Louis Park, Minn., was convicted of the gross misdemeanor charge on Nov. 5. He was acquitted on a felony charge of first-degree criminal property damage. The Minnesota Supreme Court suspended Ginsberg with pay in June, two months after the incident. He didn’t seek re-election, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan Burke won his seat on Nov. 2. He is scheduled for sentencing on Nov. 23 in Hennepin County District Court. From snowbank to savings bank Hackensack, N.J. (AP)—A state court judge has cut in half an $850,000 award given to a man who sued police after he was found unconscious on a snowbank after getting drunk at a party. Frederick Puglisi of Old Tappan, N.J., left a New Year’s Eve party at a hotel in the early hours of Jan. 1, 2001, to buy cigarettes and get something to eat. He was found behind a restaurant nine hours later with a frostbitten hand. Puglisi claimed that Bergen County police received a call from a passer-by about 1 a.m., but that the police dispatcher didn’t get enough information from the caller, didn’t pass enough information to Ramsey police and that the officers did not look thoroughly or leave their vehicles during a short search. A jury awarded him money, but Bergen County Superior Court Judge Charles J. Walsh said on Nov. 5 that the amount would be halved. “If you want to know what my conscience tells me, I was shocked by that award,” Walsh said.
