THE BIGGEST box-office debut of Angelina Jolie 's career propelled Disney's dark fairy tale "Maleficent" to a $70 million opening. The PG-rated fantasy beat forecasts to easily top all films over the weekend, according to studio estimates yesterday. Though "Maleficent" was early on considered a risky endeavor for Disney that might turn away family audiences by retelling "Sleeping Beauty" from the villain's perspective, the film emerged as a hit largely because of the draw of Jolie.

Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey on Friday said he was temporarily halting all disciplinary actions against problem officers in response to a labor board ruling against his department. Last week, the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board handed Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 a victory, rescinding some of the changes the department made in its disciplinary code in 2010. The board upheld most of the new code, but its hearing officer said punishments in more than half of the department's 107 disciplinary rules needed to be decided through bargaining with Lodge 5. The board made the ruling in response to a complaint filed by Lodge 5 immediately after the changes were introduced in 2010.

Ken Trujillo has a lot of balls in the air, and he doesn't give the impression that he is at risk of dropping any. Not so far, anyway. He merged his small, litigation-focused firm, Trujillo, Rodriguez & Richards, with the much larger Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis L.L.P. last year. His practice is white-collar defense, class actions, and corporate compliance, advising big companies on how to stay on the right side of business laws and regulations, and to defend them if the government claims they have strayed.

Montgomery County has agreed to pay $1.65 million to a Radnor Township contractor who accused District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman of bringing unfounded theft charges against him at the behest of a church that counts prominent county officials among its members. As part of the agreement, finalized this week, Ferman admitted no improper influence but was required to issue an apology to Walter Logan, whose alleged crimes she once described as "particularly despicable" and "really very low. " Those words, delivered to a TV news crew, came hours after her office had charged Logan in 2009 with bilking hundreds of thousands of dollars from Salem Baptist Church of Jenkintown during a contract dispute.

As a result, she almost always bills Medicare for the most complex level of office visit on a five-point scale - one of several hundred Pennsylvania and New Jersey physicians who do so. "Any move I make is complex," Little said.
