|Jennifer Axelberg's windshield before she drove off to escape her husband|
In May 2011, Jennifer, 37, was enjoying a weekend in Mora with her husband, Jason Axelberg. The couple went to a bar with friends and got a ride back to their cabin around 2 a.m. The Axelbergs got into an argument and Jason hit Jennifer in the head twice. He had her phone and blocked her from going back into their cabin so she turned around and went into the couple's car to escape.
Jason, 39, climbed onto the hood of the car and began smashing the windshield with his fist until it cracked. Scared, Jennifer put the keys into the ignition and drove to the nearest open business. Jason stayed on the hood while she backed out of the driveway.More »

|Gary Schiff hopes Bradlee Dean isn't afraid to have dinner with two gay guys|
"You call it the Third World, Bradlee Dean, I call it the Ninth Ward," Schiff posted on Facebook. "When you are ready to crawl out of your cave, I will gladly challenge you to a debate as to who better reflects the American Dream: you, or my constituents and the better world they are creating."
Schiff tells City Pages the challenge comes with a condition: Dean has to visit the Schiff home for dinner and share a meal with Schiff, his partner, David Barela, and Barela's mother. " I would hope he's not afraid to have dinner with two gay guys and their mom," Schiff said.More »
Steve Horner's latest battle in the war against Ladies' Night turned out to be a dead end.
Steve Horner: The arch enemy of ladies' night.
Earlier this month, Horner called brimming with optimism to report that the Nevada Equal Rights Commission was going to facilitate mediation between him and several Las Vegas casinos, which he had filed complaints against for their ladies' night specials.
But it sounds like the meetings didn't go so well after all. According to Horner, three of the casinos declined to even show up, and the others didn't have any interest in negotiating. "They told me that I had suffered no damages."More »
Steve Horner might have finally hit the jackpot in his fight against ladies' night.
Steve Horner has been a crusader against drinks specials for decades.
Long a crusader against the drink special -- he argues it amounts to discrimination against men -- Horner wired his Yankee's hat for sound and busted up some Las Vegas "pool parties" last summer. To Horner's surprise, the Nevada Equal Rights Commission thinks he might have a case, and will facilitate mediation with several casinos later this month.
It's a big score for justice, says Horner. "Nevada and Las Vegas are the mother lode of ladies' night."More »

|Steve Lundeen is not the guy you want defending your case|
He falls asleep in court. Sometimes, he doesn't show up for trial at all. And then he makes up some outlandish story about why he missed trial -- when really he was asleep in his car, next to a pipe and a bag of cocaine.
"We are asking for his disbarment -- that's obviously as serious as the discipline gets," says Martin Cole, director of the Minnesota Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board.More »
