Three Seattle Times reporters have been subpoenaed by the city attorney, who wants them to reveal the sources who provided information for articles on police misconduct in 2004 and 2005. The city is being sued by one of the officers who was dismissed at the time. The subpoenas are the first test of the state’s new shield law.   (11/30/07)
