The Arizona Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that tape recordings containing confidential information about Lincoln Savings & Loan of Irvine and one of its borrowers must be returned to a newspaper reporter who conducted the interviews. The court, without comment, rejected arguments that the recordings were, in effect, stolen property because the information should not have been released to the public. The tape recording contains interviews by Phoenix Gazette reporter Leslie Irwin with unidentified thrift regulators and others about Lincoln Savings and its loans to developers, including Conley Wolfswinkel of Tempe, Ariz.

Phoenix Gazette reporter Leslie Irwin inadvertently left the 90-minute tape cassette in the office of Tempe developer Conley Wolfswinkel after interviewing him about his loans and financial dealings with Irvine-based Lincoln.

The reclassification of non-paying loans made by Lincoln Savings & Loan of Irvine has erased the troubled thrift's capital base and left it insolvent, a federal regulator said Wednesday. Although Lincoln is now operating with a negative net worth, the regulator would not disclose the amount by which the S&L's liabilities exceed its assets. Federal regulators, who seized the institution on April 14, are continuing to operate Lincoln as they develop a plan for its future, said Mark Randall, a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
