Publisher pursuing remedies after U-T San Diego pulls out of contract
Dallas-based A.H. Belo, which publishes the Dallas Morning News, Riverside Press-Enterprise and other papers, says it is pursuing multiple remedies against U-T San Diego after it pulled out of a printing contract, according to newsandtech.com. The move on Oct 15 occurred a few months after the Press-Enterprise began printing the North County Times under a contract with the Times's former owner, Lee Enterprises. Lee sold the Times to the U-T for $12 million in September. Manchester Lynch Integrated Media (MLIM), the nominal buyer of the Times, terminated the Belo contract "well before the expiration of a multi-year contract," according to newsandtech.com. U-T San Diego told the publication it hopes to reach a mutually beneficial resolution.
