Prosecutors Appeals Bonds Evidence Ruling

SAN FRANCISCO (CN) - Federal prosecutors late Friday appealed Judge Susan Illston's exclusion of drug tests showing baseball legend Barry Bonds tested positive for performance enhancing drugs.

Bonds' defense lawyers then asked the judge to dismiss the case.
