Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim appeared in court in June seeking reinstatement to the Connecticut bar. He was suspended following his 2003 conviction on corruption charges. A panel of superior court judges has now denied Ganim’s application for reinstatement.

Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim says he supports an idea to have volunteers monitor the city's Democratic primary redo next week. Advocates say Connecticut’s zoning laws are impacting the state’s low income renters. Long Island lawmakers want to move forward with a rail line for waste management.
