Arizona supreme court to rule on lawsuit against newspaper over Iraq letter

The Associated Press reports that the Arizona Supreme Court said today it will decide whether a newspaper can be sued for publishing a letter that suggested American soldiers in Iraq respond to attacks on them by killing Muslims at nearby mosques. "The Supreme Court agreed without comment to hear the Tucson Citizen's appeal of a Pima County Superior Court judge's decision to hold a trial in a lawsuit that alleges the newspaper caused distress to local residents by its decision to print the letter," the report says.
