Not-The-LAT Mocks Staffers’ Suit

LATbanssner.jpg

A new “issue” of Not The L.A. Times is online and offers a send-up of one of the strangest chapters of the Sam Zell era: The staffers’ lawsuit against the paper.

Roy Rivenburg‘s mock pub suggests:

“On the heels of a class-action lawsuit accusing L.A. Times owner Sam Zell of wrecking the newspaper, dissident Times writers are now suing 425,000 former subscribers for ‘failing to appreciate our bodacious journalism.’”

The lawsuit seeks damages of $2.99 a week from each AWOL subscriber.
