Short Take: Encryption professor's attorneys request court review

Attorneys for professor Daniel Bernstein, who won the right to teach a course on encryption in December from a federal judge, have asked the same judge to review how the new Commerce Department cryptography export regulations impact the case. The attorneys will submit a round of briefs to U.S. District Court Judge Marilyn Patel, and she will issue a final judgment. Her judgement in the Bernstein case was that the government's encryption regulations violated free speech. But weeks later, the government released new rules, which put him back in jeopardy. Opening briefs from Bernstein and the government are due April 25, opposing briefs from both sides on May 16, and the oral arguments will be June 6 at 10:30 a.m. in San Francisco.
