ACLU, ftw!!!

From the Houston Chronicle:

A judge on Monday rejected the city's effort to keep secret most of the files and videotapes documenting the arrests of hundreds of protesters at the 2004 Republican National Convention.

The New York Civil Liberties Union, which had brought the lawsuit, said it would not immediately release the information because the city may appeal.

More than 1,800 people were arrested at the four-day convention at Madison Square Garden, where President Bush accepted his party's nomination for a second term in office.

Oddly enough, I haven't seen anything about this in the NYT. Anyone beg to differ? Please? I so want to be proven wrong here, as it rankles me to no end that the so-called 'paper of record' would ignore something like this, and in its own back yard, no less.

EDIT: I've been pwned. Here's the link to the NYT article, courtesy of Fulana's blazing fast research skills. Slow down, woman!
