Earlier this month Pennsylvania's Attorney General announced that they won't release their their list of banned sites because, after all, the point of them being banned is that someone in Pennsylvania's government who knows better than you doesn't think you should see the website. Today, the Center for Democracy and Technology appealed that decision as they're concerned about innocent sites (such as those co-hosted at the same IP address) being caught in the crossfire. Of course, this appeal is unlikely to change their mind, as they seem to believe that only people in the Attorney General's office have special powers that make it okay for them to see the websites in question and make sure they're "bad" for the rest of us. If, as expected, this happens, then the CDT could sue in state court, but they say they're going to wait and see for now.
