North Carolina Court Quashes Subpoena; Upholds Journalist's Claim of Privilege
A North Carolina court has upheld a journalist's claim to a qualified privilege under the state's shield law, and has found that the state has failed to make a "showing sufficient to overcome" the newspaper and the journalist's "qualified constitutional privilege because it has failed to demonstrate that information sought from them cannot be obtained from other available sources." The case is State v. Spivey.
