The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday granted another stay temporarily preventing Boston College from releasing to British authorities interviews that academic researchers conducted with a former member of the Irish Republican Army. Justice Steven G. Breyer issued the order after granting an initial delay earlier this month. A previous decision by a lower court had required the college to release the records. The new stay will end on November 16 if the researchers involved in the so-called Belfast Project do not ask the Supreme Court to hear their appeal. Boston College is not a party to the appeal, although it is awaiting a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit on its appeal of a second subpoena, seeking other IRA interviews.
