Folo: Court OKs search of paper's hard drives

I wrote last week about the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's ruling allowing prosecutors to search a newspaper's hard drives. Editor & Publisher has more on the search and reactions to it:
"The decision has alarmed free-press advocates as word of the seizure spreads. 'This is horrifying, an editor's worst nightmare,' Lucy Dalglish, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, told the Philadelphia Inquirer. 'For the government to actually physically have those hard drives from a newsroom is amazing. I'm just flabbergasted to hear of this.'"
