California Court Rejects Attempt To Force Reporters, California Governor And Others To 'Return' Leaked Emails

Thankfully, the court has quickly rejected the request pointing out that there's been no evidence to support the claims of the Commission, and furthermore that the entire attempt to retrieve leaked documents is "grossly overboard."
"You're asking me to have parties, including the governor of California, return documents sent to him?"The judge seems to recognize the absurdity of this attempt. Clearly, if that was a reasonable move it would basically do away with any possibility of whistleblowing. Of course, now that there's fighting over the documents, a minor scandal is getting that much more attention thanks, yet again, to the weakly attempted coverup.
