Yes, BBM.This is dated today, and says a preliminary gag order was issued pending a hearing Friday afternoon. I‘m assuming that means later today ?
Prosecutors accused members of the media of camping out, contacting key witnesses, and asking jail staff 'absurd' questions.
On May 31, prosecutors filed a motion asking the Court to issue a gag order in the case, citing intense media interest. In the motion, prosecutors cited the gag order issued in the case of Bryan Kohberger, who is accused of killing four University of Idaho students. In that case, a gag order forbids any party associated with the case from speaking to the media. There are currently open cases challenging the validity of the gag order in Idaho, including one filed by the Associated Press, which includes Court TV as a party.
The Court issued a preliminary gag order, pending a hearing on Friday afternoon.
