At the conclusion of yesterday’s hearing in United States District Court in Maryland, Judge Richard D. Bennett rejected the motion by the “John Doe” plaintiff for a temporary restraining order.
The court’s order, which was just issued and is viewable at http://muchnick.net/consentorder.pdf, notes that I have agreed to remove “the names of the minors involved in the alleged incident at the North Baltimore Aquatic Club that underlies the allegations in this case,” as well as any references suggesting that I “have access to information or records in the possession of the Maryland government agencies that are involved in investigating the alleged incident at the North Baltimore Aquatic Club that underlies the allegations in this case.”
Judge Bennett also ordered the scheduling of a preliminary injunction hearing, which will be heard by Judge William D. Quarles.
