  1. Feudale should sue !!! All of Fina’s other friends are suing.

    Can’t wait to see the e-mail exchanges between the prosecutors and the Judge.

    When is Feudale going to have to answe for why he was disclosing sealed material to the Press? The INKY should be ashamed. Craig and Angela better hope they look good in orange!!
