Wolf, Block, Schorr & Solis-Cohen, one of the city's largest law firms, has settled out of court with a longtime client in a dispute over legal fees. Wolf Block and the Korman Co. have been jousting for months over the Trevose real estate conglomerate's refusal to pay $2.8 million in legal fees. In late November, Wolf Block filed suit in Bucks County Common Pleas Court, alleging that the client with which it had enjoyed a close relationship for 30 years had defrauded it by running up legal bills Korman had no intention of paying.

Center City may need a new Convention Center to boost the downtown hotel industry, but the hotel market in the area of the Philadelphia International Airport is doing fine all by itself. Plans are moving ahead for three new hotels and a hotel expansion that could add a total of nearly 1,000 new rooms to the airport vicinity. The state Redevelopment Authority yesterday approved a Korman Corp. proposal to develop a 250-room Hyatt hotel and a 250-room Embassy Suites hotel on a 21-acre site next to the intersection of Bartram Avenue and the I-95 airport off ramp.

The Gloucester Township Planning Board Tuesday night is scheduled to consider for a second time a request by the Korman Co. for preliminary site- plan approval of a 120-unit condominium complex at College and Broad Acres Drives. The development, known as Greenbriar, will be directly across the street from the Cherrywood development, which consists mainly of townhouses. Broad Acres Drive runs through Cherrywood but ends at College Drive. Korman and Hidden Mill Associates, which is building a housing development adjacent to the proposed Greenbriar on College Drive, will have to extend Broad Acres through both of the developments.

By Michael P. Nairn Even as residents of Southwest Philadelphia's flood-prone Eastwick neighborhood face the consequences of another major storm, city officials are considering a zoning change that would lead to the construction of more than 700 apartments there. Bordering Darby Creek and Cobbs Creek, Eastwick is located on a floodplain, an inherently unstable and shifting landscape. Moreover, it's downstream of the Clearview and Folcroft Landfills, which are federally designated Superfund sites.

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration Wednesday appealed a federal judge's order to lift all age limits on who can buy morning-after birth-control pills without a prescription. The decision came a day after the Food and Drug Administration had lowered the age that people can buy the Plan B One-Step morning-after pill without a prescription to 15 - younger than the current limit of 17 - and decided that the pill could be sold on drugstore shelves near the condoms, instead of locked behind pharmacy counters.

A 40-year-old land deal near Philadelphia International Airport has come back to haunt City Hall, and one of the Street administration's most outspoken critics says it could "gouge" people who use the airport to the tune of $7 million. When the grand dreams of urban renewal were at their peak in 1961, Philadelphia officials signed a contract with Korman Corp. to construct a vast, self-contained village in the former swamps of the city's Eastwick section. Though that vision of a 12,000-home "city within a city" was never fully realized, the redevelopment agreement remained in place, and Mayor Edward G. Rendell extended it twice in the mid-1990s.

The Korman Co., which in the 1970s built Palmyra Harbour, an 800-townhouse development on Palmyra's waterfront, will seek approval Wednesday night from the borough Planning Board to build 164 condominium units, Willow Shores III. During a workshop meeting last month, the board asked how sewage treatment would be handled since the Palmyra plant already is overburdened. In addition, members asked Korman to provide assurance that the condominiums would be owner-occupied, preventing an investor from buying units and renting them.

It's the stuff that lawsuits are made of. The Korman Co., a land developer who helped build up the Neshaminy Valley in the 1970s, claims the township agreed - in writing - that the company could build a 91,000-square-foot shopping and office center on a 10-acre site at Bensalem Boulevard and Hulmeville Road. The township says it signed an agreement permitting the construction of a 30,000-square-foot store along with a few additional, smaller stores and offices. But as council member Bill Maddocks pointed out, "That was 20 years ago!

Less than a week after the township council rejected its plans to build a 57,000-square-foot store on a 10-acre lot, Korman Co. has sued the township, alleging that a 1977 agreement requires the township to approve the company's development plans for the site. The suit alleges that Bensalem is in contempt of court and asks that the council be forced to approve the plans, pay damages for the company's loss of profits because of development delays, and reimburse the company for attorney's fees.

NEW YORK - The Obama administration on Monday filed a last-minute appeal to delay the sale of the morning-after contraceptive pill to girls of any age without a prescription. The legal paperwork asked the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, in Manhattan, to postpone a federal judge's ruling that eliminated age limits on the pill, while the government appeals that overall decision. U.S. District Judge Edward Korman has said that politics was behind efforts by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius to block the unrestricted sale of the Plan B One-Step morning-after pill and its generic competitors.

A federal judge in Brooklyn ruled Friday that emergency contraception must be available over the counter without restriction for women of all ages, giving the product the same retail status as cough drops and condoms. U.S. District Judge Edward Korman's ruling caps a battle that began a dozen years ago when women's health activists first petitioned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to make the so-called morning-after pill readily available without a prescription. As he did in 2009, Korman on Friday assailed the FDA for delaying and defying the petition and subsequent lawsuit.

In one of the biggest middle-income developments planned for Philadelphia in recent memory, Korman Residential, of Trevose, is "proposing to build 722 apartment units" near Philadelphia International Airport, boss John Korman tells me. Rents to start at $1,150/month for one bedroom, $1,400/month for two. There's no formal proposal at the city planning office yet. But you could say this project has been in the works since the 1950s, when the...

As he has lived his life and has run a multimillion-dollar family business, Steven H. Korman says he has been guided by one question: "Would I like me in a movie?" The president and chief executive officer of Korman Communities, a Plymouth Meeting housing-development company best known for its extended-stay apartments and hotels, has not made it to the big screen. But he has reached star status among an anxious working public. By Friday, more than 200 e-mails and calls had poured into Korman's office - all offering thanks and praise.

It was during a morning workout on his treadmill early last week that Steven Korman felt inspired to make a public appeal to business leaders: Resist layoffs - even if that means smaller profit or a drop in stock prices. The chief executive of Plymouth Meeting-based Korman Communities was watching Pfizer Inc. chief executive Jeff Kindler on CNBC discussing the drug company's planned $68 billion acquisition of Wyeth. Korman, who owns Pfizer stock, grew peeved when Kindler said Pfizer would eliminate 8,000 jobs before the merger.

Richard G. Guenzel, 81, of Somerton, an architect who designed thousands of brick rowhouses in Northeast Philadelphia and a fieldstone home for Mayor Frank L. Rizzo, died Friday of Alzheimer's disease at Sunrise Assisted Living in Roxborough. Mr. Guenzel maintained an architectural practice in Somerton. He designed homes for Korman Corp. in Northeast Philadelphia, including Parkwood Manor, a development of 2,200 rowhouses built in the early 1960s. In the 1980s, Mr. Guenzel designed solar homes for Korman and received a government commendation, said his wife, Mary Direso Guenzel.
