The Justice Department bribery investigation of Democrat Louisiana congressman William Jefferson was temporarily delayed when two judges on a federal appellate court panel issued an injunction temporarily barring the examination of computer records and paper documents taken from the Congressman's office during a May raid by the FBI.
Judges Janice Rogers Brown and Thomas B. Griffith of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit wrote "The purpose of this administrative injunction is to give the court sufficient opportunity to consider the merits of the motion for a stay pending appeal and should not be construed in any way as a ruling on the merits of that motion." The identity of the third appellate judge is not known.
