This is a *huge* win! Now journalists can feel safe knowing that they can protect their sources’ identity no matter in which medium they choose to disseminate news (as we argued in our amicus brief [PDF]).

Kudos to the good folks at EFF for their work on this case.

Kudos indeed to the EFF, who lead the defense! SFist is just happy to be on the winning side. Also, we're happy that our legions of anonymous tipsters need not fear that we'd be legally forced to divulge their identities. So if anyone's just happen to have seen a certain mayor doing blow, get in touch!
