Judge tosses ex-Philly anchor’s suit vs. station

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia judge has tossed a defamation suit brought by a news anchor against her former station after her one-time co-host hacked into her emails and leaked private information.

A Common Pleas judge threw out Alycia Lane’s suit against KYW-TV and some of the claims against Larry Mendte, the former colleague who claimed to have had an affair with her.

Lane accused the station of defaming her before and after she was fired after being arrested in December 2007 following a scuffle with a New York City police officer.

Some of the counts against Mendte still stand. He pleaded guilty to hacking into Lane’s email in 2008.

Lane is now a weekend anchor at KNBC-TV in Los Angeles. She denied having a relationship with Mendte.
