Urban One is behind on financial disclosures
Reported by VPM News’ Jahd Khalil

Urban One — half of the partnership hoping to bring a resort centered around a casino to Richmond — said in a May 10 filing that it would file its quarterly report by July 15. The form was due May 15. Urban One also missed the deadline for its 2022 annual earnings report.

On an earning call Friday, an executive traced the delays to accounting issues around the sale of its stake in a Maryland casino. Thompson also said the company would know more this week about when it would file the quarterly form. Nasdaq gave the company an extension through Sept. 27.

Judge: Lawyers can gather evidence for $40M lawsuit filed by Newport News teacher
Reported by The Associated Press

Lawyers for a Newport News teacher who was shot by her 6-year-old student can start the process of interviewing eyewitnesses, reviewing the student's disciplinary files and accessing other records for a $40 million lawsuit against the school system, a judge ruled Friday.

But the judge is yet to decide whether Abby Zwerner's case will end up in a civil courtroom or before the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. The Newport News School Board wants the lawsuit dismissed and argues that Zwerner suffered employment-related injuries, which would be covered by workers’ compensation.
