Philadelphia County Judge Allan Tereshko has dismissed the remaining claims filed against former KYW anchor Larry Mendte by ex-co anchor Alycia Lane. Lane, currently an anchor at KNBC in Los Angeles, accused Mendte of invasion of privacy. The Philadelphia Daily News has details:
Tereshko dismissed the civil case filed against CBS 3, but had allowed some of the charges against Mendte to stand, pending further investigation.
Those final claims were dropped last week after the judge found that Lane had deleted key emails from her computer.
“As far as I’m concerned, Lane already got her pound of flesh from Larry in the federal criminal case. Larry has done nothing but try to make amends and move on, but she has nothing but vengeance in heart,” said Mendte’s attorney, Julia Morrow.
Lane’s attorney, who says the the judge was against Lane from the start of the trial, said he plans to appeal the ruling. He said he was “elated with happiness” by the final dismissal, which allows him to appeal the case to Superior Court.
