LA Times Wants Celebrity Justice–Can They Get Ann O’Neill Back?

Everything old is new again. The LAT is looking for a reporter for the Celebrity Justice spot, according to LA Observed. From Russ Stanton’s memo:

Celebrity justice–This is part of a major initiative to build out a Crime & Justice space on latimes.com this year. It involves writing breaking news off the entertainment beat, scouring court files to develop interesting and offbeat stories related to the entertainment industry and its denizens, and working with Metro in updating ongoing trials and following up on cases.

Gee, sounds just like the column Ann O’Neill used to write. She was a courts reporter who started writing about celebrity lawsuits in the Metro section. At some point, she got re-assigned to covering benefits and such semi-events, and finally left the paper.
