A Palm Beach County Circuit Court judge cites a lack of evidence in ruling that the Jupiter Police Department and State Attorney's Office will not be held in contempt of court.

Attorneys for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft claimed video of Kraft receiving sex acts at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa was leaked, based on a published report that someone was trying to sell footage to a gossip site.

Lawyers for the police department and the state attorney told Judge Joseph Marx that the agencies were not involved in any leak and the judge said there isn't enough evidence to issue sanctions.

In another Palm Beach County court room Tuesday, another judge ruled that the videos of Kraft at the spa should be temporarily sealed because they could keep Kraft from receiving a fair trial. They will be unsealed once a jury is seated in his case.

Meanwhile, we're hearing that 22 police officers and four employees at the Florida Department of Health have been subpoenaed by Kraft's lawyers. They have been ordered to show up at a hearing on Friday about suppression of the video.

Kraft not only wants to keep the video from being released, but also kept out of his trial as evidence.
