“I have no problem going to trial.” That’s how the AP quoted MediaNews Group CEO Dean Singleton (pictured) regarding a dispute over the ownership of Utah’s largest newspaper, the 128,000-circ Salt Lake City Tribune. MediaNews owns most of the paid newspapers in the Bay Area. Two trials are scheduled in September over the issue of who owns the Salt Lake City Tribune.

Coverage: AP (note that Singleton is chairman of the AP board), Salt Lake City Tribune (owned by Singleton’s MediaNews), KUTV 2, owned by CBS.
