Diebold Documents In Limbo

Stanford University's Cyberlaw Clinic and the Electronic Frontier Foundation asked a federal court for a temporary restraining order last week seeking to halt voting-equipment maker Diebold Inc. from sending legal threats to organizations that have published the company's leaked documents on the Internet. More than 20 universities, activists, and ISPs have refused to remove internal Diebold documents that the groups say reveal serious security questions surrounding electronic voting. The documents, which were stolen by a hacker earlier this year, contain E-mails, company memos, and software bulletins dating back several years. A hearing is scheduled for Nov. 17.
