Former publisher says Irving stifling his attempt to start a newspaper
Last Updated: Tuesday, October 9, 2007 | 3:00 PM AT
A former newspaper executive with Brunswick News Inc. in western New Brunswick says the company is trying to prevent him from starting a competing title in Woodstock.
In court documents obtained by CBC News, Brunswick News alleges William Kenneth Langdon is using confidential information he obtained as one of their publishers to establish his own newspaper in direct competition with the Woodstock Bugle-Observer.
Langdon resigned on Sept. 19 after working as publisher of the Bugle-Observer for four years. He worked for Brunswick News, which is owned by J.D. Irving Ltd., for 10 years.
Brunswick News initially sought an injunction to stop Langdon from starting a new publication in Woodstock but last week withdrew that request in a Saint John court.
Now Brunswick News is asking the court to issue an order preventing Langdon from approaching Bugle customers, advertisers and employees on behalf of his new paper.
Langdon's office, home and vehicle were searched on Sept. 27 by court order. Several Bugle-related documents including cash flow breakdowns, advertising rate analysis, income statements, flyer routes and a resumé were seized.
In an affidavit, Langdon states the seized documents were material he brought home in the evenings for further review while working as publisher at the Bugle-Observer and have no value to starting a new newspaper.
