Evidence – reporter privilege

FederalEvidence blog has this update on the status of a reporter privilege.  As commented earlier, under Mil.R. Evid. 1103, any new evidence rule will become applicable to court-martial cases.

After many weeks of being listed on the Senate Judiciary Committee business calendar, on December 10, 2009, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved by a vote of 14 to 5 an amended version of S. 448, the Free Flow of Information Act of 2009.

The Federal Evidence Review will continue to monitor action on the House and Senate measures. For more information concerning the legislation, see Free Flow of Information Act of 2009 Legislative History Page.
