The Baltimore Jewish Times, established in 1919, has been the subject of a contentious legal saga with its former printer and main creditor. The case has included bankruptcy filings as well as corporate and personal lawsuits. A U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge said from the bench that the case looks more like a divorce than a bankruptcy. The newspaper filed for bankruptcy protection due to a lawsuit filed by its creditor. Apparently the personal aspect stems from the long relationship between the people involved on both sides of the dispute. Several generations of the families involved have known each other and in some cases have gone to the same schools. Also, the Baltimore Jewish Times has supporters in the public who see it as an asset for the community. The judge has stated that he will only approve a bankruptcy plan that will allow the Baltimore Jewish Times to survive.
