what is the difference between twenty pieces of silver and twenty million
I'm curious what standing the plaintiffs have before the court.I am not an attorney so i do not know all the legalese, but they are not
parties to the deal, some are identified as FORMER staffers at the trib, so I
don't really see that they have a dog in the fight. It seems as best they
could file a "friend of the court" brief if someone with actual standing
filed suit.someone please elucidate me.
DN Subscriber: "Let the critics of the perpetually outraged and critical
Tribune pool their money and buy the newspaper and make their own deal."Unfortunately, they can't do this. The JOA gives the Deseret News
full veto power over any purchase of the Trib (see below). That is one of the
antitrust concerns of the case. Can you imagine if Ford could veto any outside
offers to buy General Motors? Would they ever allow sale to Toyota, Honda, or
any other company that could be competitive in the market?Article 10
of the JOA reads: "It is therefore agreed that the present ownership of
[Tribune] shall not be changed without written consent of [DesNews], which shall
not be unreasonably withheld; provided, however, that [DesNews] shall have the
unrestricted discretionary right to withhold its consent..."
Let the critics of the perpetually outraged and critical Tribune pool their
money and buy the newspaper and make their own deal. Or, they can start their
own newspaper and ensure a voice for their views.You can always cont
on liberals to work hard to spend other people's money, while protecting
their own from risk.
Of course you could also just ask for a summary judgement. That would put an end
to this... unless of course there's something to the lawsuit.
