UPDATE: Tucson Citizen Print Edition in Tombstone Territory

Judge Raner Collins of the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona today denied Attorney General Terry Goddard's request for a temporary restraining order against Gannett Co., Inc., thereby, dealing a death blow to efforts to restore the print version of the Tucson Citizen. Judge Collins said the state had failed to demonstrate the likelihood of prevailing on the merits of its claim that Gannett and Lee Enterprises committed antitrust violations and diid not conform to the Newspaper Preservation Act of 1970 when it discontinued the print edition of Arizona's oldest newspaper on May 16.
