Kansas, Missouri Judge Orders Stories Removed; Appellate Court Judge Sets Deadline For Challenge To Injunction

Two Kansas, Missouri papers have challenged a judge's order that they take down previously published stories from their websites about the Kansas City (Kansas) Board of Public Utilities that were based on a confidential document. The Kansas City Star and the Pitch have alleged that Judge Kelly Moorhouse's order amounts to a prior restraint in violation of the First Amendment. Read more here and here in stories in the Star. Here's Judge Moorhouse's restraining order.

Thanks to T. R. Franklin for the heads-up.
