This newspaper's staff could benefit from some basic writing courses. Nearly every sentence in this story is a separate paragraph, and six consecutive sentences either begin or end with "according to court documents." You've got information here, but it's not pleasant to read.

Journalism is an art form much changed by our culture over the past few years. Hell, writing itself is a dying art thanks to the internet, and folk such as Moneymyst and RDodger.

This is a well written article. The only one of the "five W's and an H" its author failed upon is his omission of the lawyers' names. Otherwise, we are presented a concise account, easily digestible by the semi-literate internet subscriber.

Publish a newspaper yourself before you gripe about the writing.

Maybe some people might need to stick with reading the newspaper the old fashion way if all they can comment on is how the editor presents it to us.
as to my comments about the story, I think this guy deserves to ROT in you know where!
