P.M. BRIEFING : Newspaper Merger Delay Sought

<i> From Times wire services </i>

Opponents of a partial merger of the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press today asked the Supreme Court to delay consummation of the business agreement so there will be further time for appeal.

The motion was filed with Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist by Public Citizen, an advocacy group founded by consumer activist Ralph Nader, in behalf of Michigan Citizens for an Independent Press, a coalition of newspaper readers and advertisers who have been battling the agreement in courts.
