ANOTHER Lawsuit Against Rutherford County? This Time Involving a Local Newspaper?

  Email   Print

Public notices have been in local papers for well over 100-years, but today the local governments are not printing these public notices in every paper. These so called public notices are required to be printed in at least one local paper. Deciding which paper to pick to run a public notice ad in is often based on rates. An example of a public notice may involve a divorce, a foreclosure or a bankruptcy.

The Rutherford Reader has tried without success to print legal notices in their paper on behalf of local attorneys and courts since 2006. In fact, they were given the approval for a time period of six weeks through the Rutherford County Clerk’s Office, but were quickly shut down.

Publisher of the Reader Pete Doughtie told us…


Doughtie told WGNS he was left with no choice but to file a lawsuit against Rutherford County because they would not use his paper to print public notices. At this point the Reader does not have a public notice section, but their current lawsuit may change that in the not so distant future.


Hear everything that Doughtie had to say…
