The Daily News took a new tack in the nearly monthlong strike against the tabloid by suing 11 people accused of burning a delivery truck, stealing bundled papers or attacking replacement drivers.

Evidence in two of the three lawsuits filed in state court Tuesday includes videotapes made by management, newspaper spokesman John T. Sloan said.Each lawsuit seeks $100,000 in punitive damages and unspecified compensatory damages. They claim defendants hurt the paper's ability to do business.
