They had been accused of releasing information about the proceedings of the jury that covered the reporter’s notes on sheriffs’ issues.
The stories about the Lawman were not to be covered in the online media, and the jury went further to seek the readers of the stories as put forward by the New Times. In a case that is prevalent in the court of appeal for months, Jim Larking and Michael Lacey sued the county.
