Mendte goes after Philly Inquirer

With his house arrest ending on Monday, June 1, former Philly channel 3 (KYW) news anchor Larry Mendte filed a lawsuit on June 3 against three columnists for The Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News newspapers, as well as the papers' parent company, Philadelphia Media Holdings, alleging defamation and false light.

As a sign of the times, the lawsuit was filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court because Media Holdings filed for bankruptcy protection in February. Now, where does a defamation plaintiff fit in the bankruptcy line?
