BRAINERD, MN – CJK Group, Inc. has acquired select business assets of Joe Christensen, Inc. in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Joe Christensen, a family-owned company since 1933 that specializes in the printing of law reviews and law journals, has made the decision to transition out of the law review and law journal business and has entrusted the transition of its publication work to Sheridan, effective immediately.
