Scott Myer, an attorney who advertises in L.A. Weekly, says his rates have doubled since the paper's owner, Village Voice Media, paid NT Media to eliminate New Times Los Angeles in 2002. Myer filed suit Friday, and his proposed class action could bring in other L.A. Weekly advertisers. In addition to asking to be paid damages and court costs, he would like to prevent the media company from hiking its ad rates.
