LAS VEGAS - A federal judge has rejected an attempt to subpoena emails and other records from the 8 News Now I-Team.
On Wednesday morning, U.S. Magistrate George Foley quashed a subpoena sought by attorneys for Boulder City. The city tried to gain access to five years of emails, texts, phone records, and notes from I-Team Chief Investigative Reporter George Knapp.
The subpoena was issued in connection with a wrongful termination lawsuit filed against the city by its former police chief Tom Finn.
KLAS-TV opposed the subpoena because it violates state and federal protections for journalists' confidentiality.
As a sanction against the city for filing the subpoena motion, the judge ordered the city to pay all attorneys fees, an amount that will be determined within a few weeks.
