Philadelphia anchor files lawsuit

Accuses co-anchor of leaking personal info

A fired Philadelphia newscaster has filed a lawsuit accusing her former co-anchor of invading her privacy and leaking personal information to the media.

Alycia Lane’s lawsuit was filed Tuesday.

Her former co-anchor, Larry Mendte, has pleaded guilty to illegally accessing Lane’s e-mail and is awaiting sentencing. He admitted reading thousands of Lane’s e-mails from 2006 to 2008.

Lane’s lawsuit also names KYW-TV, the station that employed the two. She accuses the station of defaming her before and after she was fired after being arrested in December following a scuffle with New York police.

Tuesday’s lawsuit expands on one Lane filed against the station over the summer by adding accusations and defendants, including Mendte.

Mendte’s attorney and a representative of the station declined to comment.
