(AP) The publisher and editor of the Las Vegas Sun is accusing the company that owns the Las Vegas Review-Journal of trying to kill their cross-town rivalry with a bid to buy out his newspaper and Internet interests.

Sun Publisher Brian Greenspun alleges in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas that an offer by Stephens Media LLC violates antitrust law and a 1989 joint operating agreement.

The buyout offer was accepted this month by most of the trustees of the Greenspun family trust that owns the Sun.

Brian Greenspun voted no.

The operating agreement is overseen by the U.S. Justice Department.

It has the two competing newspapers in Nevada's largest city are published and distributed together, with the Sun inserted in the Review-Journal.
