About: scranton, pennsylvania

Scranton is located in the northeastern part of Pennsylvania. Present-day Scranton and the surrounding area had been inhabited by the native Lenape tribe, from whose language "Lackawanna" (or "le-can-hanna", meaning "stream that forks") is derived. Gradually, settlers from New England came to the area in the late 1700s, establishing mills and other small businesses, and their village became known as Slocum Hollow.

Theodore Brunelle filed a federal lawsuit against the Department of Licensing, Inspections and Permits in 2015, alleging Director Patrick Hinton violated his due-process rights when he revoked several contracting licenses without giving Brunelle a chance to challenge the decision.
