seriously, I hate steroids, but the results of the 03 tests were never to be made public, and whoever is responsible should be prosecuted in my opinion.
As Doug said, there's no jurisdiction for prosecution in a case like this. I actually, as much as I would like to have the truth come out, don't care for the leaking of names from an 'anonymous' test, but there's not anything that can be done in a criminal court.
Now, if there was a mutual non-disclosure agreement, as almost certainly there was given the nature of these tests, someone could be sued for tort or breach of contract. Defamation, I would imagine, is something that could be argued.
