News-Press Employees Win Small Victory

The Santa Barbara News-Press has been ordered to pay for loss of comp time and forfeited vacation days (see Barney Brantingham's column at The Indy).

It is only $140,000 split between attorneys and 540 employees. A moral victory at best -- it is good to see the wallet being opened for people other than Wendy McCaw's own lawyers for a change. Kudos to former News-Press reporters Hildy Medina and Anna Davison for initiating the action and seeing it through.
