A federal appeals court on Monday threw out a contempt order requiring fines of up to $5,000 a day against a former USA Today reporter who refused to identify sources for stories about the 2001 anthrax attacks.To be fair and balanced, there is also a report from USA Today (cf The real cost of fining a reporter ) where they try to squirm out of the fact that clearly USA Today was stabbing our troops in the back by not fully supporting the President to Support the TOTAL VICTORY over the Anthrax Evil Doers, who were threatening liberals and the evil liberal media, with anthrax.
Toni Locy had been ordered by a judge to personally pay the fines unless she identified officials who discussed Steven J. Hatfill, who was named a person of interest in the anthrax attacks but was eventually exonerated by the Justice Department.
Hatfill, a former Army scientist, sued the federal government for violating his privacy by talking to reporters. Locy was drawn into the lawsuit after she was asked to reveal her sources.
When she said she couldn't remember, U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton ordered her to identify all her sources who discussed any aspect of the anthrax case. When she refused, Walton placed her in contempt and ordered the fines.
