A former advertising director has filed a lawsuit against ANG Newspapers, publisher of the Tri-Valley Herald and other newspapers, and two of its former executives claiming that their “Best of” awards competition “was for years a massive hoax,” the Pleasanton Weekly reports. In his complaint, filed in Alameda County Superior Court, David Marin states that he was fired in March 2003, allegedly for reasons not related to the “Best of” contest, but less than a year after he was promoted to Director of Advertising at ANG and uncovered the deception.
