The 4th Appellate District has reinstated the lawsuit that former Union-Tribune editorial cartoonist Steve Kelley filed against the U-T.
The suit was thrown out by Superior Court Judge Jay Bloom in November of 2009. Kelley had been fired by the U-T. He and Steve Breen, who replaced him, planned to do a cartoon called Dustin. But Breen backed out. Kelley charged that the U-T interfered with the contract he had with Breen.
There were some very interesting — to say the least — developments in the case.
