Legal Journalism Division

Substantive reporting on courts and cases in Northern Arizona. The emphasis of all of our reporting is explaining the law and significant legal issues related to local proceedings. Responsible citizenship requires an understanding of the law and how it is actually being implemented and interpreted by your judges, attorneys and law enforcement. We are less concerned with the drama of a case than the precedents it may set. Unlike other local news sources, we will not simply reprint press releases. Our coverage of state and federal level cases focuses on the ways in which they effect Northern Arizona.
