U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson yesterday denied the contempt of court order issued by House Republicans against Attorney General Eric Holder for failing to turn over documents to House Republicans investigating Operation Fast and Furious, the ABA Journal reports from the Associated Press. Jackson based her ruling on the fact that Holder had moved for the indefinite stay of her previous order that Holder turn over these “non-deliberative documents”. Because he had moved for the stay, Jackson says she should have ruled on it before the Oct. 1 deadline, but simply didn’t get around to it.
