Women’s college sued in ‘boy-cott’ Auburn, N.Y. (AP)-Claiming they were deceived about attending a women’s school, two students at Wells College filed a lawsuit last week to prevent the school from admitting men until after this year’s freshman class graduates. The suit was filed in Cayuga County Supreme Court, a trial court, on behalf of freshman Lauren Searle-Lebel of Arcata, Calif., and sophomore Jennifer LaBarbera of Fredonia, N.Y. They seek an injunction to stop the school, founded in 1868 as a women’s liberal arts college, from admitting men before fall 2008. The suit also seeks undetermined punitive damages and further relief. Ann Rollo, vice president for external relations, said last week that the college is committed to its plans to go coed, noting that school has seen a record number of admission inquiries from both male and female prospective students since its announcement in October. Lawyer pleads New Haven, Conn. (AP)-A former powerhouse fund-raiser for the Republican Party and the Roman Catholic Church pleaded guilty last week to taking part in financier Martin Frankel’s scheme to loot insurance companies in five states. Prosecutors said that Thomas Bolan, 80, of New York City, introduced Frankel to high-ranking church officials and helped him run a phony Roman Catholic foundation used to hide the plot. Bolan appeared in federal court in New Haven and pleaded guilty to one count of misprision of a felony, or failing to prevent or report wrongdoing. He faces up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 when sentenced on Feb. 18. Frankel, 50, has pleaded guilty to 24 counts of fraud and racketeering and is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 10.
