The attorney representing Towamencin Township has filed a motion requesting that the verdict in the Robert Smith case be reversed or that a new trial be held. In papers filed in U.S. District Court last week, the attorney presented numerous reasons why he believes a federal jury last month was unjustified in its finding that the township and two officials violated Smith's civil and First Amendment rights. The attorney, Robert G. Hanna Jr., argued that Judge Charles Weiner was wrong not to have "directed the verdict" and advised the jury to rule in favor of the township because there was not enough evidence to support Smith's contentions.

From the curved pedestrian bridge Towamencin Township built over the crossroads village of Kulpsville, you can see the next suburban boomtown rising. It's taken long enough, says Robert Nicoletti, 82, who bought ground there in 1958. From the bridge, against a backdrop of the behind-schedule Pennsylvania Turnpike widening at the nearby Lansdale exit, you can watch crews build the four-story Bridgeview apartment complex, which will start renting next month; the thick concrete core of a six-story Courtyard by Marriott hotel, due in the fall;, and the Culinary Arts Institute of Montgomery County Community College, which will enroll its first students in the spring.
