A three-judge panel of the Tennessee Court of Appeals today granted an interlocutory appeal to permit access to social media accounts in the case of former Vols football players A.J. Johnson and Michael Williams, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Knox County Criminal Court Judge Bob McGee earlier denied the request from attorneys in the case to subpoena digital conversations from the woman who accused Johnson and Williams of rape in 2014 and three witnesses. The court’s decision today now puts the pair's separate trials on hold.
