Former Los Angeles Daily Journal editor-turned-columnist Martin Berg has left the legal newspaper for reasons unknown, according to LA Observed. Berg was pushed out of the editor's chair back in December and was replaced by David Houston.
*Update: It's still not clear to me whether Berg quit or got himself fired. I'm told his column was canceled last week and that he was assigned a reporting beat - bankruptcy and antitrust or some such. On Monday, his name was scrubbed from the masthead. Yesterday, he cleaned out his desk.
