An IPO splash by a Baltimore tech company and a look at the upcoming General Assembly legislative session are among the most-read business stories of the week. But news of the potential seizure of vehicles from a Baltimore city agency topped the list. Here are the Top 5 most-read stories: 1. Sheriff to begin seizure process for Baltimore Housing Authority property to pay for lead paint judgment -- by Melody Simmons The Baltimore City Sheriff will begin the process of seizing nearly two dozen trucks, computers and other office supplies owned by the Housing Authority of Baltimore City Wednesday to auction and pay an outstanding lead paint poisoning judgment against the agency. The process will identify and help appraise the property, held at 417 E. Fayette St., the address of the Housing Authority. Information collected will be used as part of one levy against the authority, which has been ordered to pay a total of nine judgments of nearly $12 million from state courts to victims of lead paint poisoning. 2.
