    Last week, Gawker Media prevailed in a legal battle it had been waging with the FBI for more than a year.

    A judge ruled that the bureau and another law enforcement agency had to turn over evidence related to an investigation into a sex tape that figures prominently into Gawker’s pending high-stakes lawsuit.

    But during a hearing today, lawyers from Gawker Media expressed concerns about the evidence.

    Representatives from Gawker Media, the FBI and the Executive Office of United States Attorneys appeared before a judge at a United States District Court in Tampa, Florida. The purpose of the hearing was to sort out which documents requested by Gawker under the Freedom of Information Act the law enforcement organizations were legally obligated to turn over. Read more

  • News crew mugged while reporting from a crime scene


    A news crew with KNTV was mugged and pistol-whipped on Thursday morning while reporting from the scene of a crime, the station reported Thursday.

    The brazen attack occurred just before 6 a.m. at Pier 14 in San Francisco, where the reporter and photographer were covering a story about a woman who had been shot to death there the night before.

    As the two were about to go on air, a suspect pulled up to the curb in a black four-door BMW and approached the photographer and pistol-whipped him with a gun, shoved him to the ground, the photographer and reporter said. The suspect then grabbed the photographer’s camera gear, and as he was struggling to get it inside his getaway car, returned to pistol whip the photographer again, the news crew reported.
