Bernstein's brief opposing the govt. emergency motion for stay-pending-appeal of all relief granted by the District Court. Brief clearly shows that govt. has introduced no new arguments in its favor, and cannot meet the tests required for such a stay (among them a clear showing of liklihood of success on the merits of their appeal, and demonstrable irreparable harm if they don't get the say. The brief also takes the govt. to task for daring to suggest that because the govt. has censored Bernstein for 5 years it won't hurt him to be censored a little longer pending appeal.
