USA v. Karen Sypher, U.S. District Court, Western District of Ky. (2010)

The Courier-Journal intervened in this highly publicized extortion trial (in which U of L basketball coach Rick Pitino was the victim) in order to challenge the trial court’s pretrial order which prohibited the news media from attempting to speak with the defendant. A few days after the Courier-Journal’s motion, the court rescinded the order.
