What Goes On In Court, Stays In Court

Or maybe not… C/Net reports that a Canadian blogger is testing the law on this one. Hey, remember that old "we’re not journalists thing"? If you can’t fix it, feature it (I guess).

Canada’s long-standing practice of barring news organizations from disclosing what’s happening in certain court proceedings is being tested by Internet bloggers.

A Canadian commission that’s investigating charges of high-level wrongdoing in the nation’s Liberal Party has ordered news organizations not to reveal details from the proceedings, which are open to the public.

But Ed Morrissey, a conservative Web logger in Minneapolis, has been gleefully violating the ban by posting detailed reports of the verboten "Adscam" testimony. Public revelation of Adscam, which involves allegations of corruption and illegal campaign contributions, could end the Liberal Party’s precarious grasp on power and force new elections this summer.

And his page views have surged to 400,000 a day… Hmmmm, off to court then.
