From The Toledo Blade
A judge in Lucas County Common Pleas Court on Friday ordered Thomas F. Pounds, publisher of the Toledo Free Press, to turn over documents requested by Block Communications Inc. in a civil suit alleging that he breached his separation agreement with the company.
Block Communications, parent company of The Blade, sought a variety of documents as part of ongoing litigation with Mr. Pounds, the Free Press, and its editor-in-chief, Michael S. Miller, including a list of the “members” or owners of the limited liability company that owns the Free Press, as well as the company’s financial statements.
The Free Press had refused to turn over its member list and financial documents, saying they constituted trade secrets.
