DENVER — The Boulder County district attorney asked a federal judge on Thursday to stop the New York Post from seeing stacks of documents from the JonBenet Ramsey investigation.
The newspaper is seeking all documents associated with the 6-year-old’s 1996 slaying in Boulder, including those from the grand jury, which disbanded without indicting anyone in the case.
Last May, John and Patsy Ramsey filed a $4 million libel suit against the Post, claiming it falsely alleged that their son, Burke Ramsey , killed JonBenet, that he was the prime suspect in her killing and that his representatives were “in secret plea bargain negotiations” with the prosecutor.
Post Publisher Ken Chandler has said the Ramseys ’ case was frivolous.
The subpoena, issued March 15, orders the district attorney’s office to hand the documents over on April 2.
