They basically live in Phoenix, Arizona and that’s why all of their startups have been related to the news and happenings of the state of Arizona.

Several years ago, Mr. Larkin and Mr. Lacey were arrested. They both were in their homes. This order of arrest against the two was given by a person that the duo exposed. There was a sheriff named, Joe Arpaio who was a member in the Maricopa County.

He was getting several proceedings from the jury about the articles that different journalists were writing about him. The duo, Michael Lacey, and Jim Larkin did not spend a lot of time in jail. They got out soon. Once they all got out, Mr. Larkin and Mr. Lacey filed a lawsuit as well.

Many subpoenas were even ordered from the grand jury to get a list of names of everyone that had even read the story or articles. The articles about Sheriff that were published in New Times. The lawsuit that the duo filed was raised against the Maricopa County. The main reason given was the breach of their rights.

Both the journalists had fought cases against different people and companies for their own and others rights as well. The result was like every time; they won the case. They got a settlement offer of more than $3 million. They used this money for a great cause.
