MSU riot photos to be handed over p.18

By: Editorial Staff A Michigan newspaper must comply with a subpoena to turn over unpublished photographs of a March 27 riot at Michigan State University, a judge ordered last week.
Judge David Jordan on April 5 denied a request by the Lansing State Journal to squash the subpoena that had been issued by Ingham County prosecutor Stuart Dunnings. It ordered the newspaper to turn over between 300 and 400 unpublished photos that were taken during the riot, which drew 5,000 people following Michigan State's loss to Duke University in the Final Four of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Rioters set cars on fire and broke windows during the melee that ended with 27 arrests.
