Judge Delays Times Co.'s Sale Of Boston Globe To John Henry
Worcester (Mass.) Superior Court Judge Shannon Frison has delayed the sale of the Boston Globe to Fenway Sports Group co-Chair John Henry "because of a long-running dispute between the Worcester Telegram & Gazette and its independent newspaper carriers." Frison on Friday issued a temporary restraining order against the sale. A lawyer for the Times Co., the seller in this deal, offered to set aside funds for a "possible future settlement" in exchange for the judge lifting the order. Frison is expected to issue a decision today (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/23).
