A White Oak therapist may pursue civil action against Tanya Nicole Kach and parties involved in publishing her story.

On behalf of plaintiff Janice Pope, attorney Dennis M. Moskal entered a writ of summons on Jan. 18 in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas Civil Division. The writ names Kach, Lawrence H. Fisher and Tate Publishing Co. as potential co-defendants and opens the door for a future defamation lawsuit.

The named parties collaborated on the Oct. 11 release of "Memoir of a Milk Carton Kid: The Tanya Nicole Kach Story," a 216-page book that publishers promoted as the "haunting, poignant" story of Kach's decade of imprisonment by school security guard Thomas Hose.

Kach went missing in February 1996 and resurfaced in March 2006 at a convenience store after fleeing the home Hose shared with his parents. Hose had worked as a guard for St. Moritz Security Services at what was Cornell Middle School when Kach was a student.

Hose pleaded guilty in June 2007 to charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a minor, interfering with the custody of a child and endangering the welfare of a child. He was sentenced in Common Pleas Court to 15 years in state prison.

"Memoir of a Milk Carton Kid" details Kach's years in Hose's custody as well as the timeline following her escape.

Moskal did not respond to voice messages or email by presstime, and the voicemail greeting at Pope's White Oak office indicated she would not be available through Jan. 31.

The writ does not describe directly that the potential defamation suit is in response to Kach's book, but Pope is one of many locals discussed therein.

"The Kach Memoirs are true accounts in all respects, including the unfortunate conduct of Ms. Pope that it details," Fisher said Tuesday afternoon.

"The writ filed by Ms. Pope is regrettable, thoughtless and worthy of no other comment."

Isn't it funny how in her story and her interviews she says there was a cell phone from Tom's ex-wife left in his room but it had no service? I'd like to see someone call home from a cell phone without any service either! Who's the dumb idiots now? Now go and do your homework!

I agree - the call can be made from an out of service phone.
