Court: Cops can have IRA bomber's Mass. interview

Court: Interview with IRA car bomber for Boston College oral history project can be released By The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) A U.S. federal court has rejected efforts to stop police from obtaining interviews a convicted Irish Republican Army car bomber gave a Boston College oral history project.

The ruling Friday by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals means the interview with Dolours Price will released to police next month. Boston College is still trying to quash a broader subpoena for other materials from its project.

Project participants say the interviews were supposed to be secret until their deaths. But Northern Ireland police probing the IRA's 1972 killing of a Belfast woman want the recordings.

BC didn't appeal a district court order last year to turn over the Price interviews, though project director Ed Moloney and ex-IRA member Anthony McIntyre did. The appeals court ruled they had no right to stop their release.
