UPDATE: Appeals Court Denies Government Motion to Delay Release of Telecom Lobbying Documents

Today, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied the government's emergency motion asking for a 30-day stay in today's deadline to release records relating to telecom lobbying over last year's debate over immunity for corporate participation in government spying. A district court imposed that deadline in our long running Freedom of Information Act case. The government filed another emergency motion in the district court this afternoon following the 9th Circuit decision, again asking for stay pending its decision on whether or not to appeal. You can find more background in yesterday's blog post and we'll post any more information as soon as we get it.
UPDATE: The district court held the matter over until next week, when it will decide whether a further stay is warranted.
