A $2 million libel lawsuit is back on track for Joan Lunden's former husband, who sued a supermarket tabloid for reporting that he had sex with a prostitute.

An appeals court voted 4-0 on Tuesday to reverse a ruling that had thrown out Michael Krauss' lawsuit against The Globe on grounds that he was a public figure when the story was published six years ago.Krauss, 59, was "elated" by the decision, said his lawyer, Allan Mayefsky.
