    DA's office accuses defense of leaks

    A judge imposed a sweeping gag order in the Steve Foley case yesterday, ordering lawyers to stop leaking evidence and refrain from talking to the media.

    “No leaks, no press conferences,” San Diego Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Fraser told the lawyers during an afternoon court hearing. “I will enforce this order through contempt or whatever other means appropriate.”

    The gag order was necessary, the judge stated, “to prevent this case from becoming a media circus.”
    The judge's ruling came after numerous San Diego media outlets were given evidence pertaining to the investigation into the wounding of Chargers linebacker Foley.
