UPDATE: 'Citizen' Caned

The Arizona Attorney General's Office has quietly and voluntarily withdrawn its antitrust lawsuit against Gannett Co., Inc., and Lee Enterprises, one week after U.S. District Court Judge Raner Collins refused to grant a preliminary injunction that would have forced the continued publication of a print edition of The Tucson Citizen (see blog posts 5/19/09).
The lawsuit, which alleged violations of the Newspaper Preservation Act of 1970, was voluntarily dismissed without prejudice, so technically, the suit could be refiled, but that's as unlikely as a resurgence of classified advertising in print newspapers.
