Default Why is USADA releasing Erik Morales' test results before even checking the B sample?

While I believe it's likely Morales used clenbuterol to make weight, there is a reason they split the samples up and have them tested the way they do to avoid false positives. Now he is labeled a cheat without it even being proven yet. Marion Jones similarly had an A sample turn up positive for PEDs, but her B sample did not, and so it was scarcely even reported as it was determined to be a false positive by USADA's procedural standards.

Are they even allowed to release this information the way they have?

yes. If it gets leaked that's not their problem. They inform Morales and GBP that their job. Whoever leaks the news after that is in camp.
