Ramos filed a lawsuit against the newspaper for defamation in 2012, one year after it wrote about his guilty plea to criminal harassment in a column.
Also killed were editorial page editor Gerald Fischman, special projects editor Wendi Winters, reporter John McNamara and sales assistant Rebecca Smith. He says Ramos barricaded the exit door so employees couldn't escape, and that one of the five people who were killed was shot while trying to escape out that exit. The story, which was written by staff writer Eric Thomas Hartley, detailed the case where Ramos repeatedly contacted a former high school classmate via Facebook, according to court documents.
