Sox owner John Henry will have to wait a little longer before his purchase of the Boston globe gets the green light.

A judge has temporarily halted the $70–million dollar sale because of a lawsuit filed by carriers of the globe's sister paper the Worcester Telegram and Gazette which is also a part of the sale.

Lawyers say Henry can't buy the papers until the suit is settled. The judge will rule tomorrow whether or not to let the sale go through.
