The Star Tribune wrote recently about a feud among scientists in University of Minnesota’s cancer lab.  The complaint of Olga Issaenko is here.

The Star Tribune seems to have policies of not referring to lawyers’ names as a matter of course in reporting about law suits (Issaenko is represented by Minnesota civil litigator, Damon Ward) and not posting links to court filings.

Why? I have wondered out loud about this in the past but I have never gotten an explanation from the Star Tribune or anyone else for that matter.

I note that other newspapers (for example, the New York Times) and other news providers (Bloomberg) have increasingly incorporated links to official documents.
