The showdown between Philly’s newspaper owners Lewis Katz and George Norcross will begin its first major proxy war in the Court of Common Pleas today as Katz and his cohort  challenge the ouster of storied Inquirer editor Bill Marimow.


The suit argues Team Norcross had no authority to fire Marimow because it did not have the authorization from parent company Interstate General Media. IGM has already demurred on procedural grounds that the suit should be removed to a Delaware, where IGM is incorporated. [CBSPhilly]

    I pray God makes life hard on a george like he made it hard on people he punishes a d bullies on NJ. He is so damn evil. May Gods Wrath fall on Norcross

    We pray in the name and through the blood of our Lord Jesus that Gods Christ Wrath begin on Norcross for all the vicious attacks he has done on the child of God. Make haste dear Father on this prayer. In Jesus blessed name. Amen.

    Devour this enemy God shame and disgrace him and his family for future generations. Send this evil demon back to the pit of hell
    Make his way dark and slippery
    Turn the desires of his heart against him. Show no mercy or grace on his health.
