|The Daily Camera filed a complaint December 16, 1997 alleging that Alli Krupski, who resigned December 9, 1997 removed documents and files estimated to be worth more than $15,000. The newspaper's complaint alleges that Krupski's continued possession of the files constitutes theft.
Alli Krupski worked at the Daily Camera since June 1996 and was considered the newspaper's lead reporter covering the Ramsey investigation. The items listed as being stolen are copies of the Ramsey autopsy report, search warrants from Colorado and Michigan, initial police reports and the Camera library's clip file on Police Chief Tom Koby.
The Camera also accused Krupski of taking the documents between Nov. 14 and 17, and again on Dec. 10, 1997. Krupski admitted taking the files but claimed they belonged to her. Krupski also testified she deleted computer files and shredded some police reports provided by a confidential source Nov. 14. "My agreement with the source was when they didnt want the information available anymore, I destroyed it," Krupski testified. "I simply followed the sources orders."
On December 16, 1997, a restraining order was issued for Krupski from selling, destroying or in any way using documents or computer files owned by Boulder Publishing Inc., which owns the Camera and is part of Scripps Howard Newspapers.
The Daily Camera filed a motion on February 26, 1998 to have the lawsuit against Alli Krupski dismissed but the motion was denied by the courts. Alli Krupski counter-sued the newspaper and on March 22, 1999 the court dismisses theft claim against Alli Krupski. On March 24th the court awarded Krupski $115,000 in damages in a victorious 15-month legal battle and eight-day trial with the newspaper
