California Supreme Court declines review of contempt order against former Spector lawyer

The Sacramento Bee reports:

The California Supreme Court refused Wednesday to hear an appeal by one of Phil Spector’s former attorneys, who was found in contempt for refusing to tell the jury in his murder trial about a possible piece of evidence allegedly withheld by a defense expert.

The decision opened the door for attorney Sara Caplan to be jailed if she continues to refuse. Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler ordered her to appear in his courtroom Thursday.
