The Supreme Court refused Thursday to order the Bush administration to make public secret details of Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force,
but kept the case alive by sending it back to a lower court.
Justices said 7-2 that a lower court should consider whether a federal open government law could be used to get documents of the task force.
Wow! An interesting non-decision/decision. As I understand it, the court did not address the issue of whether or not the papers should be released,
but instead sent the issue back to a lower court judge with additional instructions.
