Former Tribune Staff Sue Over Joint Operating Pact

Published on June 17, 2014 at 12:06PM

A group of former employees of The Salt Lake Tribune have filed a lawsuit to suspend the newspaper’s joint operating agreement with the Desert News, arguing that the terms violate federal antitrust laws and undermine the Tribune’s independent voice. The 30-page lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court on Monday says the agreement that was revised in October gives too much control to the Deseret News. The group previously sent a letter asking the U.S. Justice Department to review the recently revised 6-decade-old agreement between Salt Lake City’s two daily newspapers. Under the revised agreement, The Desert News bought the Tribune’s share of a printing plant and will get 70 percent of the profits, up from 42 percent before.
