High Court Rules for Cheney

The Supreme Court has ruled that VP Dick Cheney does not need to reveal secret energy documents--at least for now, and in all likelihood, not before the election. It sent the case back to the lower court for further review:

The Bush administration won't have to reveal secret details of Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force before the election, after the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a lower court should spend more time sorting out the White House's privacy claim.

In a 7-2 decision, justices said the lower court should consider whether a federal open government law could be used to get task force documents. Even if that court rules against the administration, appeals would tie up the case well past November.
