Roberts Gets Tentative Ruling in His Favor

A Santa Barbara judge has tentatively ruled against Wendy McCaw in her acrimonious and "take-no-prisoners" arbitration battle against former editor Jerry Roberts.

Apparently, McCaw has spent $2 mill in her recent legal battles. This is enough to keep a few non-profits in Santa Barbara going for years. The tentative ruling orders her to pay Roberts $12,153 in attorney's fees and $48,600 in arbitrator fees. Her legal team had said the arbitrator was too slow -- I've yet to hear an admission from them that they have been slow in responding to the National Labor Relations Board. What's good for the goose....

According to Craig Smith, the judge stuck to his tentative ruling, so McCaw loses and Roberts wins. Not clear whether Ampersand will appeal, though that's what it usually does.

It sure would be cool if the stakes were such that Wendy had to give Jerry the News Press if she lost.
