NEW YORK (AP) -Lawyers for Hearst Corp. have filed to appeal a U.S. District Court decision denying their request to make public the names of baseball players implicated in obtaining steroids.
U.S. District Judge Thomas C. Platt in Central Islip ruled Sept. 14 there was no public right to the names, which were in a December 2005 sworn statement by IRS Special Agent Jeff Novitzky used to obtain a search warrant for the home of former New York Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski.
Hearst, acting on behalf of the San Francisco Chronicle and Albany Times Union, filed the appeal, Hearst lawyer Eve Burton said Friday.
