Federal attorneys have subpoenaed The Times-Picayune's parent company for information about 11 commenters on the newspaper's website, as part of an investigation of posts by two federal prosecutors.
Company attorneys have asked the government to explain why the information is wanted.
The Justice Department is investigating anonymous criticism of judges and comments about cases by two top prosecutors under U.S. Attorney Jim Letten, who resigned last month.
