Memphis DA may subpoena blogger Matthews

DA Bill Gibbons wants to know who leaked a confidential police document to blogger Thaddeus Matthews, and he may subpoena Matthews to find out, the Commercial Appeal reports. Matthews says he's not giving up his source. "Though there is no case law in Tennessee on so-called 'nontraditional' journalists, it would just be very, very hard to argue that Matthews does not fit within the shield law's language," CA lawyer Lucian Pera is quoted as saying.
