Court TV Buys Lively Internet Crime Site

The Smoking Gun , the Web site that disclosed that an ex-girlfriend of Who Wants to Marry a Multimillionaire?'s Rick Rockwell had obtained a restraining order against him, has been bought by Court TV.

The site, which has also posted numerous other sensational court documents, has been run by William Bastone and Danny Green, who will continue to operate it.

"These are fun, creative guys who have broken a number of stories using documents in the public domain," Court TV exec Galen Jones told today's (Thursday) New York Post.
