(Portland, OR)  --  A Portland reporter may be called into court to testify about his story under oath.  Freelancer Mike Bivins tells OregonLive that a city attorney has asked him to sign a declaration about protests he covered last year in Portland's downtown area.  He says he was told that if he didn't sign, the city might seek a subpoena for his testimony in a class action suit filed by the ACLU.  Oregon reportedly has some of the strongest laws in the country protecting journalists from giving testimony about the information they gather or their sources.
