Michael Viner and Deborah Raffin's New Millennium Entertainment, the Beverly Hills publisher of Jayson Blair's book, was ordered liquidated by a bankruptcy judge, the New York Daily News says. The publisher filed for bankruptcy in September shortly after signing the Blair book and following following a $2.8 million breach-of-contract verdict on behalf of New York publisher Otto Penzler.
