Inquirer Lawsuits/Deathmatch to Be Heard/Fought in Philly
For the sake of our collective amusement/collective dread, the Inquirer owner vs. Inquirer owners lawsuit will be battled in Philadelphia. George Norcross III, (Inquirer owner) wanted to hold it in Delaware, where the papers (of course) are incorporated.
The judge (Patricia McInerney) has set a hearing for November 13th on a preliminary injunction sought by a rival owners’ faction to reinstate Inquirer editor Bill Marimow, whose firing by publisher Bob Hall early last month touched off the owners’ feud.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, some surprisingly good news about the Inquirer‘s circulation numbers–digital growth especially.
