WSPD Gets TRO Against Toledo Mayor

CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WSPD-A/TOLEDO has won a temporary restraining order against TOLEDO Mayor CARTY FINKBEINER in federal court that requires the city to allow WSPD representatives to attend the Mayor's news conferences.
The station and FINKBEINER have been embroiled in an eight-month-long dispute over the station's right to cover the events, culminating in last week's incident at which the Mayor's aide tried to physically bar WSPD reporter KEVIN MILLIKEN from entering a press conference. The city must now notify the station of all press conferences and must allow the station's reporters access. The station will look to make the injunction permanent at a hearing later this month.
