A judge has decided that investigators for Earth First! bombing suspects Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney may inspect the car that blew up but are not to move the vehicle from police impound. Alameda County Superior Court Judge Henry Ramsey Jr. ruled Friday that the car can be inspected visually, but no parts or other contents may be removed. Further, the judge said, the defense is allowed to put the car into a container to prevent air pollution from contaminating evidence.

Prosecutors said Tuesday they will wait at least two weeks before deciding whether to formally charge two environmental activists accused by police of causing an explosion that nearly killed the pair last week. Supporters of the two said the delay indicates police have a weak case and renewed their charge that someone tried to assassinate the activists to stop their efforts to preserve old-growth redwoods. One of the activists, Darryl Cherney, 33, of Piercy, remained free on bail Tuesday.
