PHILADELPHIA -- A judge has dismissed remaining claims in a defamation suit brought by a former Philadelphia news anchor against her onetime co-host, but her attorney vowed an appeal.
The Philadelphia Daily News says a Common Pleas judge last week dismissed remaining counts in Alycia Lane's lawsuit against Larry Mendte, who pleaded guilty to hacking into her email in 2008.
The judge earlier dismissed the civil case against KYW-TV but allowed some charges against Mendte to stand.
Lane was fired after being arrested in December 2007 following a scuffle with a New York City police officer. Mendte's attorney, Julia Morrow, said her client has been trying to make amends and move on.
Lane's attorney, Paul Rosen, said he is "elated" that he can now appeal the case to Superior Court.
