Bankrupt, contentious local pizza chain The Upper Crust is being auctioned off at the time of this post, and Globe correspondent Jenn Abelson, who has followed the company's downward spiral, has shared an update. According to Abelson, the "ousted" founder Jordan Tobins seems to have won bids for locations in the South End, Lexington, Watertown, and Wellesley. Meanwhile, attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan, who has gone against the company in court on behalf of its exploited employees, is in the lead for the Harvard Square location. If she gets it, she may give employees ownership shares, as she previously told the Globe. See here for the full rundown on who else has put in bids for which locations and follow Abelson on Twitter for the most current updates.
