Editor’s Note: This story is part of an ongoing series about the subpoenas of the Belfast Project.

United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer recently approved a stay on the Belfast Project materials being sought by the Police Services of Northern Ireland (PSNI).

The stay, which was issued yesterday, will remain in place until at least Nov. 16.
The announcement by Breyer approved a request made by Belfast project researchers Ed Moloney and Anthony McIntyre for a stay on the lower court decision until the Supreme Court decides whether or not to hear the case of the Belfast Project.

“It is ordered that the mandate of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, case Nos. 11-2511 and 12-1159, is hereby stayed until November 16, 2012,” the decision by Breyer read.
