Jerry Roberts' Arbitration Hearing: Stay Tuned

I'll be at the Courthouse this morning to cover the hearing on whether Wendy McCaw's Ampersand Publications can put a halt to the arbitration it initiated against Jerry Roberts, the former editor of the paper.

Ampersand, much like a prize fighter who is way behind on points, wants to halt the arbitration and have the arbitrator dismissed.

Yesterday, Superior Court Judge James Brown issued a tentative decision indicating he would rule in favor of Roberts and require Ampersand to continue in the arbitration until it is concluded.

I plan to have an updated blog post around mid to late morning reporting on the outcome of the hearing.

You can also follow my updates during the hearing on Follow me on Twitter.

In the meantime, if you want to review the background and the history of the arbitration up to this point, you might want to look at my post of January 6 of this year.

Until then . . .
