A federal judge gave NOLA.com|The Times-Picayune some breathing room as it battles to keep private information about two online commenters who posted remarks about a former New Orleans housing official fighting corruption charges.
U.S. District Judge Mary Ann Vial Lemmon on Monday (March 31) holstered her March 26 order that the identities behind the commenter handles "jammer1954" and "aircheck" be turned over by Noon Tuesday (April 1), in the case against Stacey Jackson. Jackson suspects the commenters are federal law enforcement officials.
