Here's your daily look at five stories to know about today:

1. Harrah's security lawsuits: A computer engineering student from New Jersey is the latest person to file a lawsuit against security guards at Harrah's Atlantic City, bringing the number of recent cases to at least four.

2. Property-tax appeals: Philadelphia's Board of Revision of Taxes is facing a giant backlog of about 20,000 property-tax appeals. Thousands of homeowners have challenged their reassessed property values under Mayor Michael Nutter's new system, and the long process of adjudicating those appeals is delaying tax payments to the city and Philadelphia School District.

3. Sandy recovery hearings: A New Jersey General Assembly committee will probe the state's oversight of its Superstorm Sandy rebuilding and recovery programs at a hearing this afternoon, and Sen. Robert Menendez is set to hold a meeting in Newark to discuss recovery efforts with residents.

4. Superbowl transit: New Jersey lawmakers are scheduled to hold a hearing on the massive delays on New Jersey Transit after last month's Super Bowl.

5. Boston Marathon security: Authorities are planning to release more details for security procedures at this year's Boston Marathon today.
