Lawyers tell NYT to keep terror case story off web for now

USAToday.com | Freakonomics Blog | New York Times
The Times’ Page One story on the evidence that British police have collected against the suspects accused of plotting to bomb airliners isn’t on its website. A print edition editors’ note explains: “Publication of this article on nytimes.com has been delayed temporarily on the advice of legal counsel. It is also being omitted from the British circulation of The International Herald Tribune. This arises from British laws that prohibit publication of the information that could be deemed prejudicial to defendants charged with a crime.” || Related comment from Stephen J. Dubner. || UPDATE: The story is now online.
