Try again, judge tells media lawyers

News media lawyers who sued to unseal the court order blocking access to documents in the U.Va. lacrosse killing investigation took the wrong tack with a writ of mandamus directed to the court clerk.

That was the ruling today from Charlottesville Circuit Judge Cheryl Higgins, according to WVIR-TV. Higgins apparently agreed with the lawyer for the clerk who argued that a motion to intervene in the criminal case against George Huguely was a more appropriate method of challenging the sealing of the order.
