One thing can be said for certain about the 2005 local Emmys: Channel 3 news anchor Larry Mendte will go home a winner, and also a loser. Mendte is competing against himself for his coverage of two huge events in New Jersey last year that could be described as precipitous - raging floods and the hasty resignation of Gov. Jim McGreevey. Nobody else was nominated in the category of "special live news coverage. " But lots of folks from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware have been nominated for many, many other things, from investigative journalism to promotional announcements.

U.S. District Judge Mary A. McLaughlin received more than 70 letters from Larry Mendte's family, friends, former media colleagues, and others attesting to the disgraced TV anchor's professionalism, compassion and community spirit. The letters surfaced yesterday as part of the sentencing memorandum. Most were typed; others were written in longhand. Perhaps the most poignant came from Mendte's wife, Dawn Stensland, a news anchor at Fox29. She begged the judge not to impose jail time.

FOR ANYONE else, being a morning-drive radio personality in Philadelphia would simply be a great job. For Larry Mendte, being the co-host of WWIQ-FM's "Philly's Morning News" is exponentially more significant. The gig, which Mendte started when the station signed on earlier this spring, represents a chance to atone for the unseemly scandal that was ignited when it came out publicly that he had hacked the email account of Alycia Lane, his former news co-anchor at CBS3. "Because of my missteps and because of my great mistake, this is a chance at career redemption," said Mendte, who served six months on house arrest after being convicted in late 2008 of the digital snooping.

WORD GOT OUT that Alycia Lane was fired from her anchor job in LA last week. It turns out former CBS3 anchor Larry Mendte is also looking for work. Mendte and Lane were embroiled in scandal in 2008 when he was busted for hacking into Lane's email. A spokeswoman at New York's PIX11, where Mendte did commentary pieces that aired locally on PHL17's "Eye Opener," confirmed that Mendte was no longer with the station. When I inquired why, I got no response. Mendte's last report for the channel, on swimmer Diana Nyad , occurred on Sept.

Pennsylvania's Superior Court has breathed new life into the all-but-dead civil suit brought by former CBS3 anchor Alycia Lane against the station and onetime coanchor Larry Mendte. The decision, filed Thursday, clears the way for Lane's case against Mendte and CBS3 to proceed to a trial, and revives a long-running saga with details that have fueled gossip pages and produced reams of legal filings for years. "We're back," Lane's attorney Paul R. Rosen sing-songed in an interview Friday, giving his best Poltergeist impression.

THREE MONTHS after he was adjudicated a felon, a shamed and contrite Larry Mendte yesterday arrived at the U.S. District Courthouse to take a seat in the public stocks. Soon, one of Mendte's ankles will be fitted with a snug electronic monitoring device. The disgraced anchor will wear it for the six months of house confinement to which he was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Mary McLaughlin, along with three years of probation and a $5,000 fine for obsessively and illegally reading the e-mails of his former co-anchor, Alycia Lane.

What's next for Larry Mendte and CBS3? Uncertainty surrounds the anchor, two weeks after the FBI confiscated his home computer and visited the station to tell management that he was suspected of peeking at onetime coanchor Alycia Lane's private e-mail and feeding gossip to the media. Mendte was pulled off the air. The station said he was not suspended. Through his attorney, he has declined to comment. TV news professionals interviewed last week said that even if Mendte is not charged, he will not be back at CBS3 because the whiff of an FBI investigation - including the rare step of impounding a computer - impugns his credibility.

The feds were wary. The proposed investigation had a tabloid taste. It was early spring, and Paul Rosen, a lawyer for the disgraced former CBS3 anchor Alycia Lane, had just approached the FBI with sensational suspicions that someone at the station had hacked her e-mail. The alleged victim, poised to sue CBS3, was hardly sympathetic and was alleging only a handful of computer intrusions, people close to the investigation said. To complicate matters, the FBI's prime suspect soon became Lane's former coanchor, Larry Mendte.

LARRY MENDTE is free and clear. For now. Common Pleas Judge Allan L. Tereshko has dismissed the remaining claims filed against the former CBS 3 anchor by ex-colleague Alycia Lane . But Lane's attorney, Paul Rosen , made it very clear that he planned to appeal the ruling. Tereshko dismissed the civil case filed against CBS 3, but had allowed some of the charges against Mendte to stand, pending further investigation.

PHILADELPHIA - 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.

Larry Mendte 's attorneys have asked WMCN TV to hold off airing what was to be the first episode of "A New Dawn," his wife Dawn Stensland 's weekly program that debuts at 7 p.m. Thursday. In the episode, already taped, Mendte and Stensland discuss the impact on their marriage from his conviction on illegally accessing former CBS 3 coanchor Alycia Lane 's emails. And while we understand Lane's name is never mentioned, nor particular details of the situation, Mendte's attorneys still believe it best to delay the footage until a judge rules on the civil case Lane brought against Mendte for his actions.

THE STATE Supreme Court has ruled that the much-anticipated trial of Alycia Lane's civil suit against her former co-anchor Larry Mendte and their ex-employer, CBS, will remain in Philadelphia. Lane and her attorney, Paul Rosen, wanted the case to be tried here. CBS had filed an appeal to change the venue to New York, arguing that Lane's contract contained a clause saying that cases against the network should be heard in New York courts. Lane alleges in her lawsuit that Mendte illegally hacked into her email accounts and leaked details to the media.
