BALCO saga continues: The SF Chronicle held in contempt

Bob Egelko of The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the paper has agreed to be held in contempt of court for refusing to disclose its reporters' [Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams] sources of grand jury testimony in the BALCO case. This could result in fines of over $500,000. "The Chronicle's editor, Phil Bronstein, said, 'While this latest filing is largely about legal procedure, it again speaks to our unqualified support for these two great journalists, their work and their commitment to standing by the confidentiality of their sources.'"
