Judge Reinstates Fired Philadelphia Inquirer Editor

By: Thomas Fitzgerald and David Sell | Philadelphia Inquirer

In a late-afternoon ruling, Common Pleas Judge Patricia A. McInerney declared that Marimow's firing on Oct. 7 violated the contract rights of Lewis Katz, one of the owners who had opposed his dismissal.
