Judge Gertner stays “narrowcast” hearing

In the Tenenbaum copyright infringement case, (blogged here, here, and here) Judge Gertner has stayed (pdf) the hearing on Tenenbaum’s motions (and the coordinated “narrowcast” of that oral argument) based upon the record companies’ requests for a writ of mandamus.

Because the decision to allow the “narrowcast” was highly publicized and likely to be perceived to be on the “cutting edge” of technology broadcasting of federal court proceedings, I can see how Judge Gertner would want the Court of Appeals to review this it. Plus, I have to go to a CLE tomorrow, so I’m glad that I won’t have to miss it.

Hat tip to  this post from from Wired.com, reporting the decision.
