TN Waltz prosecutors file motion to stop media leaks

Action News Five has learned that Tennessee Waltz prosecutors filed a motion with the judge Thursday to try to stop media leaks.

In a video clip obtained this week by Action News Five, State Senator John Ford was seen talking with an undercover FBI agent at a Chattanooga restaurant.

Prosecutors in the trial are worried evidence like this might influence potential jurors.

So, they filed a motion asking for a "protective order" to keep all of the defendants and their lawyers from leaking information or talking with the press.
