Maybe They Should Call It "Upstairs, Downstairs?"

Is Montecito's Rob Lowe still acting in dramas or is he about to star in his own reality series?

And in case you're wondering, the answer is yes, Wendy McCaw's News-Press did carry an article on the lawsuits that Lowe and his wife filed yesterday against two of their former nannies and their personal chef.

The Lowe's attorney is Stanton Stein from Santa Monica. He is the same lawyer who represents the News-Press in its lawsuit against The Independent for copyright infringement.

I wonder if Wendy is getting the "refer-a-friend" discount?

The News-Press had yet more of its allegations of unfair labor practices against the Teamster's Union bounced by the NLRB on Monday.

Not only did the NLRB's investigative staff find the allegations to be without merit, they also determined that were filed after the deadline for doing so had expired.

Reacting to the decision, News-Press lawyer Barry Cappello told the Associated Press that the dismissal of the News-Press' complaint was "part and parcel of what's apparently a pro-union bias by the NLRB staff."

"Bias?" Now that's a word you don't hear very often around here.
