SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Justice will not appeal a court ruling that cleared baseball slugger Barry Bonds of obstruction of justice in a probe over steroids, the government said in a court filing on Tuesday.

The decision effectively ends the long criminal prosecution of baseball's career home run leader.
