    •  I checked (none)
      I checked the PACER docket.  It doesn't show a stay past November 1, but the CIA filed a motion for reconsideration to be heard on November 11.  I suspect there is a further stay pending the hearing on that motion but it hasn't made it into the system yet.  The judge seems to be extending the stay a few days at a time.

      The filing of the motion for reconsideration extends the time to appeal, so that is still out there as well.

      •  Tod's right (4.00)
        It looks like separate agencies have each filed motions for reconsideration, but I don't understand why the CIA was allowed to file such a motion after the expiration of time to do so.

        Tod's right, in saying that this is a delay tactic, because the period within which an appeal of the district judge's ruling can be appealed does not start until the court acts on motions for consideration.

        There are two ways to keep up on what's happening, short of contacting the law firm which is handling the case for the ACLU (and by doing so bothering them):  contact the ACLU and ask that updates be posted to the ACLU web site weekly or daily; or check the CourtWeb system to see whether any further rulings have come from Judge Hellerstein.

        Here's a link to the CourtWeb system search page for the Southern District of New York:
        NYSD search .  On that page, select "Alvin K. Hellerstein" on the drop-down list of federal judges, enter the case number ("04" for the year, "cv" for the type, and "04151" for the number), and make sure that you have entered a time period (for example, From "10-01-05" to "11-01-05 or whatever day you are doing the search").  Then click on "Run report".

        We're all in this together.

        •  One more step (none)
          That link I posted does not take you to the Southern District search page, but to the general CourtWeb page.

          So...first you need to select "District Court for the Southern District of New York" from the drop-down menu on that page and click on "Proceed to CourtWeb".  Then follow the instructions in the message above.

          We're all in this together.
