In a case that has ramifications for TV news-gathering techniques, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Cincinnati has removed a temporary restraining order preventing the broadcast of a hidden-camera interview on the syndicated magazine show "Inside Edition." But the decision, while prohibiting the blocking of the disputed footage, did not address other issues about hidden-camera interviews in TV news. Those issues are likely to be pursued in other legal action.

A judge granted a new trial to defrocked priest Maurice Blackwell on Friday. The conviction on charges that he molested a boy who shot him years later was thrown out less than two months after a jury found the former priest guilty. Circuit Judge Stuart R. Berger agreed with defense arguments that jurors should not have heard prosecution witnesses testify about other alleged victims of Blackwell, 58.

Two years after being acquitted of attempted murder in the shooting of a Roman Catholic priest, Dontee Stokes is back in the same courthouse -- this time to face the former cleric accused of molesting him. Maurice J. Blackwell, 58, was defrocked by the Vatican last year. He faces four counts of child sexual abuse and could be sentenced to up to 60 years in prison. In three days of testimony that ended Tuesday, Stokes, 29, was the lead prosecution witness.

Blackwell on three counts of sexual abuse was the former altar boy finally able to imagine a life free of the need to prove himself. Tormented by memories of childhood abuse by a clergyman he once had admired, Stokes told his anguished story to police detectives in 1993.
