No Auto Trade Secrets – Vermont Emissions Trial to be Conducted in Public

From the Burlington Free Press, more on the Vermont automobile emissions case in which the auto industry sought to close the courtroom because of trade secrets concerns. We had earlier reported on the case here and here. The case concerns Vermont's efforts to control automotive emissions.

Federal court judge William Sessions stated:

"I want to rule only on what the public hears. You don't take subject matter like this and decide on it outside of the public's view."

The Burlington Free Press had challenged the attempt to close the courtroom.
