Senior U.S. District Judge Joseph L. McGlynn Jr., a jurist in Philadelphia for nearly 35 years, died of an apparent heart attack on Monday while vacationing with his wife in Cancun, Mexico. News of the 74-year-old judge's death saddened colleagues who worked with McGlynn at the federal courthouse at 6th and Market streets. "I was devastated," said Edward R. Becker, chief judge of the U.S. 3d Circuit Court of Appeals, a longtime friend of McGlynn's. "He was a great trial judge . . . and a wonderful human being.

As Mike McGlynn sees it, he's playing Sunday. "And I'm going to play a lot," the Eagles backup center said after Friday's practice at the NovaCare Complex. But the Eagles would rather he didn't have to see an enormous amount of action in the season opener against the Green Bay Packers at Lincoln Financial Field. That's because the expected return of Jamaal Jackson at center will be a huge lift to an offensive line that struggled without him in the two final games last season.

A federal judge yesterday refused to block about 150 layoffs of employees in Common Pleas Court or the transfer of 49 members of the president judge's staff to other duties. But U.S. District Judge Joseph L. McGlynn suggested that Common Pleas President Judge Edward J. Blake could hire people on Monday to replace those staff members transferred yesterday. "If he wants to hire more staff and he has the authority to do that, I suppose he could do that," McGlynn said in a bench opinion.

A federal appeals court ruled yesterday that - at least for now - the Pennsylvania Supreme Court can carry out its fiscal and administrative restructuring of the Philadelphia Common Pleas Court without interference by a federal judge. In a one-line order, Chief Judge Dolores K. Sloviter and Judge Anthony J. Scirica of the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay of a preliminary injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Joseph L. McGlynn Jr. McGlynn's preliminary injunction had prohibited the state Supreme Court from exercising supervisory authority over Common Pleas Court President Judge Edward J. Blake.

U.S. District Judge Joseph L. McGlynn Jr. tried to intercede this week in the New Jersey custody case of his daughter, an incident that attorneys for the daughter's estranged husband called an improper use of the judicial office. McGlynn yesterday confirmed that he had contacted the husband's attorneys but said he did so in his role as a father, not a judge. Attorneys Kenneth Richmond and William Hevenor said they felt McGlynn was trying to intimidate them by saying in a telephone call Thursday that he was a federal judge in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, where they practice.

The University of Pennsylvania is free to decide punishment for fraternity Zeta Beta Tau, accused of hiring two female strippers last fall to participate in a show for new recruits that also involved cucumbers and ketchup. U.S. District Judge Joseph L. McGlynn Jr. yesterday denied a request by the fraternity to stop the university's Fraternity and Sorority Advisory Board from deliberating on a recommendation that Zeta Beta Tau be suspended from campus for four years. "I'm not going to interfere in the university's procedures at this time," McGlynn said.

For seven years, Irwin "Chubby" Stelweck and his brother, Alfred, who is known as "Blackie," had a great thing going with discount coupons that manufacturers place in newspapers and magazines to sell their products. They enlisted about 170 small stores in the Philadelphia and South Jersey areas to claim falsely that customers had redeemed coupons worth more than $5 million when buying the merchandise. In fact, according to an investigation by Internal Revenue Service agents and U.S. postal inspectors, the coupons had been clipped from newspapers and magazines but never redeemed by consumers, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul A. Sarmousakis.

Center City dentist Owen J. Rogal will get another chance to prove to a federal judge that he did not lie under oath during his ill-starred libel suit against the ABC-TV program 20/20. The Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday threw out the $256,000 penalty imposed on Rogal in September 1994 by U.S. District Judge Joseph L. McGlynn Jr., ruling that McGlynn failed to give Rogal a hearing before imposing the penalty. "The imposition of monetary sanctions by a court implicates fundamental notions of due process and thus requires fair notice and an opportunity for a hearing on the record," wrote appeals Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. in the unanimous opinion by a three-judge panel.

A federal judge yesterday reversed a jury's finding that Delaware County's Fair Acres nursing home for the elderly discriminated against an Upper Darby woman when it refused to admit her because of unruly behavior caused by Alzheimer's disease. Officials of Fair Acres, wrote U.S. District Judge Joseph L. McGlynn Jr., refused to admit Margaret Wagner not because she has Alzheimer's but because her violent, aggressive behavior - requiring one-on-one, 24-hour care - was impossible to handle for a nursing home serving a general population.

Gagging the lawyers and sternly warning the defendant, a Philadelphia judge on Monday cut from $60 million to $3 million the bail for accused rapist and former Police Officer Richard DeCoatsworth. Common Pleas Court Judge Charles Ehrlich called "excessive" the $60 million bail that has kept DeCoatsworth, 27, behind bars since his May 18 arrest. He is charged with raping two women after allegedly threatening them with a gun and plying them with drugs. Ehrlich's ruling means the former hero officer may be released pending trial after posting $300,000 - 10 percent of bail - in cash or property.

DISTURBING AND dark details of the life of fallen "hero cop" Richard DeCoatsworth emerged yesterday in a packed Common Pleas courtroom where the former lawman was hoping to get his $60 million bail lowered. Instead, DeCoatsworth, 27, learned that a grand jury had indicted him on charges of rape, sexual assault, intent to possess or distribute drugs, human trafficking, promoting prostitution, witness intimidation and related offenses in a May 16 incident involving two women. According to a criminal complaint, DeCoatsworth - who survived a shotgun blast to the face as a rookie in 2007 and sat next to first lady Michelle Obama during the 2009 State of the Union address - went to a house on Howard Street near Berks in North Philadelphia on May 16 with two women.

Appearing at times confused and despondent, a North Philadelphia man charged with trying to kidnap a 10-year-old girl as she walked with her 2-year-old brother in South Philadelphia on Tuesday waived his right to a preliminary hearing. "That's the way it is," said Carlos Figueroa-Fagot, 33, speaking through a Spanish-language interpreter, when asked if he understood what he was doing by agreeing to have his case proceed directly to trial. Handcuffed and in an orange prison jumpsuit, Figueroa-Fagot used that phrase several times in a brief appearance before Family Court Judge James Murray Lynn.

South Florida introduced the NCAA tournament to the Big East's nastiest defense Wednesday night, putting more than just a chill into a California team that had never seen anything like it. The Bulls allowed only 13 points in the first half and brushed their way to a 65-54 victory in their first-round game in Dayton, Ohio. The Bulls (21-13) earned the 12th seed and will play No. 5 seed Temple in Nashville on Friday, a matchup of teams known for gritty defense. Few have been better than this one for the first 20 minutes on the NCAA stage.

Billionaires arguing with millionaires. That's the way some have categorized the NFL's labor dispute, which reached the point of no return when the NFLPA decertified Friday. "I cringe every time I hear it," said Eagles center Mike McGlynn, one of the team's union representatives. "I just want to jump through the TV screen and say, 'I'm not a millionaire!' " Of course, the majority of the NFL owners aren't billionaires, either, although Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie is worth $1 billion, according to Forbes.

By his own admission, Mike McGlynn was a work in progress this season. The same could be said for the entire Eagles offensive line. Right to the bitter end, when King Dunlap replaced Winston Justice at right tackle in the second half of Sunday's 21-16 wild-card playoff loss to Green Bay, the Eagles' offensive line was unsettled and unsteady. One constant in the lineup was McGlynn, a third-year player who took over the starting center position from the injured Jamal Jackson in Week 2. But McGlynn's situation underscored the shaky state of the offensive line as the former University of Pittsburgh athlete was playing center for the first time in his career and was forced to learn on the fly. "You can't replace experience," McGlynn said.
