The temporary restraining order (NET NEWS 1/14) obtained by MUSIC VENTURES Talk KFKA-A/FT.COLLINS-GREELEY, CO GM JUSTIN SASSO against BRETT REESE, owner and host of crosstown low-power KELS (104.7 THE PIRATE) and a member of the GREELEY-EVANS School District 6 Board of Education has been made permanent by a WELD COUNTY Court judge.
Judge CHARLES S. UNFUG ordered REESE, who became controversial after denouncing Rev. Dr. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. on the air and packing a gun for school board meetings, to stay at least 100 yards from SASSO, his home and KFKA.
REESE had threatened a "shootout" with KFKA because it was going after KELS' advertisers. REESE says he will appeal the judge's ruling.
