Reporters off hook for shielding steriod-use source

Two San Francisco Chronicle reporters have been cleared of contempt of court for refusing to name a source who leaked secret grand jury testimony about steroid use by major league baseball players. The reporters still refuse to identify their source but a lawyer faces fines or jail after admitting he allowed the journalists to take notes of the grand jury transcripts. See the March 2, 2007 Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press posting for details.
