    BankruptcyMisconduct readers can get the all of the 17 one page ads for free together in one file here from our free downloads section related to the ongoing Petters Company fraud. These ads were reportedly placed with a Star-Tribune newspaper but were subsequently pulled from publication without justification.

    We are tracking the story on websites by Stop The Petters Scam Foundation. The "Stop The Petters Scam" scam website at http://stopthepettersscam.com which has the original ads on display. Their wonderful documentary on the Petters scandal entitled "The Second Fraud" has a trailer over at TheSecondFraud.com. That site shows the following press release describing a lawsuit about the illicit censhorhip:

    MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Stop The Petters Scam Foundation, a Minnesota non-profit corporation, today filed a lawsuit against the Star-Tribune Company alleging breach of contract and related charges, and against 30 unknown "Doe" defendants for interference with contractual relations and related charges.

    The Foundation's lawsuit asserts that the Star-Tribune "admittedly was pressured by certain unidentified persons to abruptly stop the publication" of a series of 15 advertisements that it had contracted to publish. Although the Star-Tribune agreed to run all the ads and accepted payment for them, it "apparently succumbed to pressure from as yet unknown powerful interests, and breached a fully executed oral agreement and abandoned its journalistic obligation to educate and enlighten its readers," the lawsuit states.

    "Ultimately, this lawsuit is about the value of free speech in America," said Garrett Vail, president of the Foundation. "The Star-Tribune concedes that they received pressure to halt our ad series. The public has a right to learn what's been going on in the handling of the Petters assets. Somebody doesn't want us to continue asking questions and raising embarrassing facts. We intend to identify who pressured the newspaper, and hold them and the Star-Tribune accountable."
