Chemerinsky To Buy Stake In L.A. Weekly

LACABA Journal, Chemerinsky Plans to Invest in Los Angeles Alternative Weekly Newspaper:

Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of the University of California at Berkeley School of Law and a columnist for the ABA Journal, has an additional title: media investor.

According to a blog post from LA Weekly, Chemerinsky plans to join a group of investors that bought the alternative newspaper serving Los Angeles, but who hadn’t been revealed before Friday.

Chemerinsky told the Los Angeles Times that he plans to invest because he has “enormous admiration and respect” for Brian Calle, the new operations manager for weekly and another investor. Calle is a former opinion editor for the Southern California News Group.
