Judge rejects ‘Whitey' Bulger bid to ban Boston Globe journalists from covering South Boston gangster's federal trial

US District Court Judge Denise J. Casper ruled today that veteran Boston Globe journalists Kevin Cullen and reporter Shelley Murphy can cover the trial of James “Whitey'' Bulger, the South Boston gangster who was recorded on jailhouse tapes describing his disdain for the two journalists who have chronicled his career for decades.

Casper issued her ruling from the bench in US District Court, where she was addressing a number of pretrial issues raised by attorneys for the 83-year-old Bulger and federal prosecutors. Bulger's much-anticipated trial begins in earnest next week.
