Par Ridder ordered to step down as Strib Publisher

In a move that shocked The Blog, both newsrooms and, well, everyone else in the journalism world, a Ramsey County judge forced Minneapolis Star Tribune publisher Par Ridder to step down from his post because he took confidential information from his previous gig at the competing St. Paul Pioneer-Press.

The P-P provides a link to the judge’s order (pdf).

We hear that reaction from inside the P-P newsroom was more surprised at the rather unprecedented ruling than jubilant.

We’re also waiting anxiously for our favorite guilty pleasure, the Par Excellence Blog, to weigh in.
