WASHINGTON (AP)–Recordings of former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby’s secret grand jury testimony will be released publicly after they are presented at his trial, the judge at Libby’s trial ruled Monday.

In a victory for the news media, U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said he has concerns about releasing the recordings during the trial, but that he has no choice under the law.

One of Libby’s lawyers, William Jeffress, said playing sound bites of the defendant’s grand jury appearances in a public setting such as a trial “seriously threatens Mr. Libby’s right to a fair trial.”
