Reporters Fainaru-Wada (l) And Williams
RAINS CALL FOR FURTHER ACTION: Bonds’ attorney, Michael Rains, said that Fainaru-Wada and Williams “should be prosecuted on charges of conspiring with Ellerman to disclose the grand jury transcripts.” Rains: “I think they’re co-conspirators in a criminal enterprise with Troy Ellerman ... a deceitful attempt to undermine orders of a federal judge.” The CHRONICLE’s Egelko notes Rains last year “unsuccessfully sued” the reporters, the publisher of their book, “Game of Shadows,” and the Chronicle “on similar grounds” (S.F. CHRONICLE, 2/15).
