Did anyone else catch this news article:

*Catholic* high school sues over Wikipedia
posting<http://news.google.com/news/url?sa=t&ct=:ePkh8BM9E2IFGm_AAqJKDJhAVBKQAlsCZJcbMIKoVAMmmB1GAg4fPNt9N8h_CUvPO3Rqxpy5AEQnD14/0-0&fp=44c4f6b2e92f353a&ei=v77ERLDhFoGaHKza5YYC&url=http%3A//www.fremontneb.com/articles/2006/07/22/ap-state-ne/d8j16tdo0.txt&cid=0&sig2=651yd3EMEvoxXfo_JkdjHw>
Fremont Tribune, NE - Jul 23, 2006
OMAHA, Neb. - *Skutt* Catholic High School has filed a lawsuit over an edit
posting on Wikipedia, the online, publicly compiled encyclopedia. *...* That
opinion showed up in June on http://www.*wikipedia*.org. And
*Skutt*officials say there have been three other objectionable entries
since
February. *...*

The link is gone now but it still shows up on a google search:
http://news.google.com/news?sourceid=mozclient&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&tab=wn&q=wikipedia+skutt&btnG=Search+News
and on yahoo search
http://news.search.yahoo.com/news/search?p=wikipedia+skutt&c=

However, an article claiming it is from the AP wire still exists here:
