Barney Breaks $25 Million News

McCaw Seeks $25 Million from Roberts, Barney Brantingham Reports

This morning, none other than the New York Times decided that the News-Press story was worthy of its coverage once again. ny%20times.gif See the story here. We can only hope that their lawyers are preparing for some “dialogue” with Wendy McCaw’s legal team.

And thanks to that article, our columnist Barney Brantingham was able to do some digging of his own. Barney_at_News-Press.jpg He discovered that McCaw slapped former editor Jerry Roberts with a $25 million claim in her amended arbitration. That was just posted in‘s On the Beat column a few minutes ago. (Yea, we know Barney usually posts his midweek On the Beat on Tuesdays, but this was too juicy to let slide till tomorrow.)

And that’s all we’ve got to report on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Have a good one.
