According to state health officials, cat overpopulation is one of the biggest animal crises in Delaware. On Wednesday, PetSmart Charities awarded a $200,000 grant to Forgotten Cats, a non-profit that traps, neuters, vaccinates and then releases cats back out into the wild. The organization will work on controlling the feral cat population in Newark, New Castle and Bear.
The Delaware Supreme Court has suspended a former state prosecutor for legal misconduct that forced the reversal of a 2012 murder conviction. The supreme court has suspended former deputy attorney general R. David Favata from the bar or six months and one day. Favata retired from the state Department of Justice in March, but was still licensed to practice law in Delaware.
