"Triangle media groups seeking football records sue UNC" -

It's interesting to note that the Daily Tar Heel is part of this lawsuit, but guess who is absent?

"The two McClatchy newspapers joined forces with the DTH Media Corp., which publishes the UNC-CH student newspaper the Daily Tar Heel; News 14 Carolina, a cable TV station operated by Time Warner Entertainment-Advance/Newhouse Partnership; WTVD Television; Capital Broadcasting; the Associated Press; and, Media General Operations."

I can think of some reasons why WUNC would not join in the suit (but none to prevent them from reporting that the suit had been filed), but it would be nice to know what they are for sure, and it would also be nice to know if WUNC has at least asked UNC to release the documents? Or is this a story that WUNC's "news department" is not able to cover more than the several brief references they have made over the least several months?
