Posted on 03/19/2007 9:32:20 AM PDT by tcrlaf
WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal judge ruled Friday that a former escort service owner cannot sell phone records and other documents that could be used to publicly identify thousands of her clients.
Deborah Jeane Palfrey, 50, has said she planned to sell the list of up to 15,000 client phone numbers and other records to a news organization to help raise money for her defense. The alleged "D.C. Madam" ran Pamela Martin and Associates, an upscale escort service in the Washington area, for 13 years before it closed in August.
Palfrey's civil attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, said Friday he does not believe the judge's order bars him from distributing copies of the phone records for free.
In any event, Sibley said it's a moot point because he has already given copies of the records to an undisclosed news organization. Sibley said the original records are preserved and nothing he has done will prevent prosecutors from inspecting all the materials

Didn't see this posted anywhere.
bttt wonder how soon we'll see the names
It's one way of keeping his client alive.
Bet there are some judges, prosecutors and politicians on that list that would like to see this whole thing just go away. Look for her to be offered a fine and a plea down to a misdemeanor.
Kinda late to try to close the barn door, aint it?
I'm thinking that BUNCHES of people want this to go away...
She operated 13 years, and from what I've read elsewhere, specialized in LESBIANS?
The "Lack of Media Interest" itself tells me that there are lots of DEMOCRATS scared to death right now...
Nope. But this Paul Duggan/WaPo piece is related, [Palfrey's list] and comes pretty close.
"owner cannot sell phone records and other documents"
Can one of our armchair lawyers note the law the prevents owners from selling private property?
For Pete's sake, Bush is NOT on the list!
Specializes in lesbians...... not that Oprah couldn't turn it around to be a *good* thing for Shrillary.
50 bucks says Cold Cash Jefferson is on that list.
But apparently it was on the menu.
The media would be "leaking" prominent Republican names, even if none existed, if this was a wholly Repub thing...
Me thinks she did it to STAY ALIVE.
You never know what a Clinton might do when pushed into a corner. Just ask Ron Brown....
OOPS, you can't....
My money is on Fathead Kennedy.
I can not WAIT to see that list. I bet it has a serious effect on the 08 elections.
If there are Repubs on the list, so be it. Out them. I don't want men like that running my country.
If it was bought by The New York Times, you can be sure it will disappear down Orwell's "Memory Hole", lost forever...
Hmmm. Just about the time Mary Caitrin Mahoney took her place as one of Bill Clinton's first crop of White House interns.
My guess: Because both Pubbies and 'Rats are on the list and there's a MAD strategy underway, in other words if the Pubbies fink on the 'Rats, the 'Rats will fink on the Pubbies. Betcha there are some journos on the list as well.
Somebody's got to get their mitts on that list and let it ALL hang out.
And another reason why character counts.
100 says Joe Scarborough would give away his banjo to get off that list.
" MSM sure has acted timid regarding this list '
Perhaps some of the MSM are on the list.
Rather than "who is on the list?", a bigger question to me is what did she do after 13 years to get shut down? Her business was certaily known to many of the DC elite and she was most likely "allowed" to operate.
For good reason probably 95% of the names (with telephone numbers) belong to democ'Rats and their enablers in the liberal MSM.
Not necessarily. Though expect the names of some NYT staffers and managers to disappear from it.
Let the extortion continue.
Time to start a speculation poll. Brokaw? Rather? We can build a list and develop a "mostly likely top candidate".
Well, it won't be Barney Frank -- he uses the personal columns.
Even at minor comments by Republicans the media has gone into hysterical rants - such as Quayle's spelling of potato which was a total nonissue, nothing compared to some of the things the Clintons have uttered.
"Time to start a speculation poll."
We ALREADY KNOW that Clinton Operatives are on the list, and rumor is that she specialized in Lesbians...
Remember, you can go back as far as 1993!
**The "Lack of Media Interest" itself tells me that there are lots of DEMOCRATS scared to death right now...**
Yes, my thoughts exactly. But there will be GOP on it too, I'm sure.
"Cash offers," said Sibley, naming no names or prices.
There's one thing for certain. The MSM already knows who is on that list.
Probably the whole Kennedy Clan. Oh the deliciousness of it all; especially in this extended electioneering period. I agree with the other poster; let the chips fall where they may. Good to get it out now and allow for a thinning of the field and substitute runners join the marathon.
Oh come on now. You know the .45 inch hole in Rons skull, and the metal spray shown on his X-ray, were caused by the crash not a pre-frag round such as a Glaser or MagSafe fired at close range.
All the MSM and Dems have to do is have someone speculate that Pres. Bush may be on that list and within 2 days, it'll be the gospel truth even though it's not.
She should have the list sent to Drudge. He'd publish it, no matter who was on it.
Before she does, she should let it be known that fingers are on the button somewhere to press the "send" key if she doesn't walk out of that prosecutor's office with a "no prosecution" agreement.
She has the government by the short hairs, and she should publicly blackmail them, just like they blackmail everybody with threats in order to get what they want. And then, when they refuse to play ball, that send key should be hit out there: to Drudge, to Rush, to Rolling Stone, to Taranto at the Wall Street Journal, to the NY Times, to the National Enquirer, to the British tabloids, to the Toronto papers: all around the world.
Let me go, or I will bring the house down on top of you.
You won't let me go?
Fine. Then die, politically, all of you.
She should take them down.
That's the name of my daughter. Beautifum name.
I'd presume there are no Republicans on the list or we'd already know about them.
"She should take them down."
Better she does it this way. Otherwise, Marcy Park and the corner Starbucks become dangerous places...
Somebody's got to get their mitts on that list and let it ALL hang out.
Back when the news of the Craig Spence male prostitute ring that reached into the White Whouse broke, so too did a couple of lesser *feeder* operations come to light, one in Nebraska that flew young boytoys from Nebraska locations- including the famed Boy's Town orphanage- and another, titled *Muscles Midwest* that provided young male hustlers to an Indiana-Ohio clientele that included state capital legislators, lobbyists, attorneys and at least one Indiana Supreme Court nominee who wound up stabbed to death by one of the MM boy prostitutes...and whose pimp/operator reportedly committed suicide in Ohio before he could be arrested. Upon recovering the *Muscles Midwest* client/preferences list, and finding the numerous prominent state and local politicians on it, the Ohio investigators were reeled in, and last I'd heard the US Secret Service got custody of the records, on the basis that someone from Indiana under their protective umbrella was on it.
But at least one Indianapolis Star columnist was not only involved with one of the MM male prostitutes, but wrote openly about it. The operator, BTW, is buried in Washington, Indiana, where an arson death and related disappearance of a couple of local youngsters around 1988 remains unsolved.
Oh, you can go clear back to 1988-89, since turn about is fair play.
See # 28, above.
The Perky one; Katie Coric? But that begs the question; as a client or a sub-contractor?
She was in "Business" for 13 years, and was shut down last year.
So, for this particular pool, let's use 1993 as the start date, which just happens to coincide with the arrival of Clinton's "Beautiful People" in Washington!
And since WE KNOW one high-level Clinton Staffer is on the list, how many others are there?
Ted Koppel and, before his 1992 death "of stomach cancer" on July 9, 1992 at age 79, Eric Severeid. To name but two, based not just on speculation, but as named by witnesses.
She was in "Business" for at least 13 years. And was almost certainly sponsored by a more local figure who foresaw the need for the service/s she coiuld provide, which were ongoing for quite sometime before Clinton's arrival.
See, for example, this Free Republic 1999 post of a 11/'98 WND article posted by Uncle Bill *here*. These affairs and those behind them go WAY back before 1993.
