Judge orders school newspaper to delete stories

Defense lawyers might be frustrated about the availability of information on the internet, Lunsford said.

“But what they don’t realize from the court’s perspective, we only have jurisdiction over government offices that play a part in the prosecution of a particular individual, and no one else,” he said.

The Daily Times had published short stories on the cases of two defendants, while the other three cases appeared in weekly court reports. Executive editor Bob Heisse likened archived stories to historical records of facts, which aren’t altered.

“I appreciate [Lunsford] acting as fast as he could to straighten this out,” Heisse said. “It’s very clear that it was on the wrong path.”
