Below represents the only time the Sacramento Bee ever mentioned Charles Nordby in their newspaper. In this obituary, the Sacramento Bee gives the impression that they have no knowledge of Charles Nordby's fraud lawsuit against Chuck Collings and Raley's.
When you listen to the two audio players below you will hear one Raley attorney mentioning inside of a court room (back in 1995) that the Sacramento Bee has provided them faxes that Charles Nordby or his sons have sent to them. The other audio is from another Raley's attorney talking about an ex-parte' hearing that he has set up in Judge Joe Gray's courtroom (before Charles Nordby passed away in 1996).
Charles Nordby never showed up for this exparte' hearing and Judge Joe Gray stamped a court document stating Mr. Nordby appeared before him and made oral arguments-on a day Charles Nordby was never even around the Sacramento courtroom. The Sacramento Bee was very much aware of Charles Nordby's lawsuit against Raley's but kept silent about it.

Below represents the court documents from Raley's in the court hearing where Charles Nordby doesn't show up, but Raley's attorney's get a stamp from Judge Joe Gray stating Nordby appeared in the hearing and made oral arguments---Nordby wasn't even there....
Read below where Raley's attorney indicates Charles Nordby appeared on his own behalf in pro per at this hearing. Charles Nordby didn't appear at this hearing because Nordby had already determined that Raley's had not properly served him and Judge Joe Gray didn't have jurisdiction over the case. Judge Gray's rulings were moot and Raley's had been in default.
