When Time Warner, which had long owned 50 percent of Court TV, acquired the other half last month, everyone was sure that layoffs would be coming soon. Today they finally arrived. Reports a Court TV source:

As you may have heard, the first layoffs from Time Warner buying the other 50 percent of Court TV began today. But where she stops nobody knows. So far PR, finance, affiliate reltions have all taken big hits, but who has left the building is subject of whispers. The good news? Soon even the interns will have offices.

See, and people say there's never any coordination among the TW units. Isn't it nice to see them exporting Time Inc.'s recent HR strategy across the company?
