Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk was in court today for a hearing on his libel lawsuit against NewsChannel 5 and its reporter Phil Williams. The suit stems from a story Williams did about an alleged deal Funk made with Nashville developer David Chase to close two cases. Williams refused to reveal his sources for the story, but the person who released the information, lawyer Brian Manookian, has admitting doing so, the Tennessean reports.
