Transit Agency To Ask Court To Continue MIT Gag

August 13, 2008

An advocacy group plans to appeal a 10-day temporary restraining order that halted the presentation on how to hack Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority's subway fare system. The Electronic Frontier Foundation will argue Thursday that the court order violates the free speech rights of three MIT students.

For its part, the MBTA is hoping to side step the free speech issue, reportedly planning to ask a Boston federal judge to reword the extended gag order to cover only "nonpublic" information.
