U.S. District Judge Walker D. Miller ruled on a subpoena filed in the Ramseys' libel lawsuit against the New York Post. The Judge ordered the district attorney's office to turn over files in the murder case to the New York Post (who is being sued by the Ramsey family for libel.) The order covers any documents from the beginning of the murder investigation to the date of Hunter's affidavit regarding the investigation of Burke Ramsey, potential charges against him, or any plea negotiations concerning charges against the child. Prosecutors have until May 9 to turn them over.
