A suit filed against Sandusky Newspapers Inc. was dismissed in February. The owners of a downtown bar claimed the Sandusky Register “negligently published false and defamatory statements.” BMT Management and Robert Tomazic Jr. filed the lawsuit May 13, in Erie County Court of Common Pleas. The suit named Sandusky Newspapers Inc., the Register’s parent company, and several of its employees. The suit stems from the newspaper’s coverage of a June 2004 fight that happened in a city parking lot adjacent to The Drinkery
