Housing caseworkers decry what they say is a “blacklist” of prospective renters maintained by a powerful Utah law firm. A newly released database shows that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the fifth largest private landholder in the United States. And the Utah Jazz square off against the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Andy Larsen, Bethany Rodgers and Tony Semerad, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
