In my Resources post from a few days ago, I noted that Chevron had bought a sponsored Google link to their Bowoto factsheet. As this post from law.com notes, Judge Illston ordered the sponsored link be removed in addition to a general gag order for the counsel and parties in the case.
Well, since my last search, the link has disappeared.
Now, as far as that gag order goes–I have in my notes that Judge Illston also ordered all parties to the trial to refrain from making public statements about the case. She explicitly instructed the lawyers to not give interviews to media or bloggers.
Then why praytell did I just find this statement by Chevron spokesman Don Campbell, recorded after Day One?
