Judge Expedites Hearing on Preliminary Injunction in Diebold case

Today a California Federal District Court agreed to expedite the process that will determine whether two Swarthmore students may post internal corporate documents that demonstrate that Diebold's electronic voting machines are flawed on their web site. CIS represents the students who are arguing that the fair use privilege protects their posting, even if the documents are copyrighted.

The Court also denied the request by CIS, and EFF who represents the student's ISP, for a temporary restraining order which would have prevented Diebold from sending any further cease and desist orders. Here is Judge Fogel's Order.
