The Trump Organization has filed a lawsuit seeking to reclaim $90,000 in unpaid fees from a Trump Tower resident who died in an April fire at the tower.
The board of Trump Tower Condominium — through Trump Organization lawyer Sonja Talesnik — filed the suit in Manhattan Supreme Court late Tuesday against the estate of 67-year-old Todd Brassner seeking the common charges and fees. The New York Post reports Brassner's heirs, Todd and Heather Brassner, did not return calls seeking comment.
The New York Fire Department has said the fire was accidental and Brassner's apartment did not have a smoke alarm.
A family dog believed to be dead after a brick wall collapsed off of a home in Philadelphia's Kensington neighborhood was found buried alive under rubble two days later.
Sections of a three-story brick wall on Emerald Street collapsed into the yard of neighbor Jose Gonzalez on Monday.
Gonzalez believed his dog Magic, a 16-year-old American Pit bull Terrier, died in the accident. The family tried digging through the rubble by hand, but couldn't locate Magic.

Officials say White House Counsel Don McGahn left the Trump administration Wednesday, NBC News reported.
News of McGahn's departure from the White House was first reported by The New York Times, which cited two people close to him. Two White House officials confirmed to NBC News that Wednesday was McGahn's last day.
McGahn's departure comes a day after President Donald Trump told The Associated Press in a Tuesday interview that Washington lawyer Pat Cipollone would serve as his next White House counsel.
Trump in August said McGahn would leave the White House in the fall.

A police officer in Columbus, Ohio, instructed an 11-year-old caught Saturday with a BB gun to remember one name: Tyre King.
The 13-year-old King was killed in 2016 when another police officer responding to reports of an armed robbery saw him pull what appeared to be a gun from his waistband. By the time officers determined the object was a BB gun, it was too late.
When Officer Peter Casuccio stepped out of his patrol car to confront an 11-year-old on Saturday, his own weapon was drawn. Like King, the youngster pulled the gun from his waistband before dropping it onto the sidewalk. Casuccio said he knew it was a BB gun only when it broke into pieces on impact.

It's been eight years since the U.S. Supreme Court declared that political spending is free speech. The decision eased the way for corporations, unions or nonprofits to spend massive amounts to support, or more often, denounce candidates in tight races.
Citizens United, as the ruling is commonly known, has transformed American political campaigns, most notably over the airways.
But the flood of cash also pays for an army of field offices, canvassers, data miners and even good-old-fashioned opposition researchers, in a system designed to influence voters around the country.
Russian authorities in Crimea were searching Thursday for a possible accomplice of the student whose shooting-and-bomb attack on his vocational school killed 20 people and wounded more than 50 others, a top official said.
The 18-year-old student, who authorities said later killed himself in the school's library, was initially believed to be the only person involved in the carnage Wednesday at the Kerch Polytechnic College in the Black Sea city of Kerch.
Authorities haven't provided a motive for the shooting. Teachers and classmates have described the attacker as a shy person with few friends.

The "last piece" from missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was published late Wednesday by The Washington Post, his editor announced in a note.
Khashoggi has not been seen since visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on Oct. 2. The New York Times reported that Turkey has recorded audio that indicates he was killed inside the consulate, and NBC News reported Wednesday that President Trump said he has asked Turkish authorities for this recording, "if it exists."
Post global opinions editor Karen Attiah is convinced her colleague met a untimely end, writing, "The Post held off publishing it because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together. Now I have to accept: That is not going to happen. This is the last piece of his I will edit for The Post."

A man who was trapped for days at the bottom of an old abandoned mine shaft in Arizona was rescued Wednesday after a friend hadn't heard from him.
Maricopa County sheriff's officials say the man fell into the 100-foot shaft in Aguila sometime Monday.
He was found Wednesday by his friend Terry Shrader, who knew the man was at the abandoned gold mine and hadn't heard from him, according to NBC affiliate KPNX.
The parents of a missing Wisconsin teenager, who were found dead in their home, were killed by gunshots and their deaths ruled a homicide, autopsies showed Wednesday.
No gun was found at the scene and authorities believe 13-year-old Jayme Closs was in the home at the time of her parents' deaths, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said during a Wednesday news conference.
Closs has been missing since deputies responding to a 911 call found her parents, James and Denise Closs, dead in their home in Barron, a rural western Wisconsin community about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis. Authorities have said Jayme isn't a runaway and investigators believe she's in danger, Fitzgerald said Tuesday.
