coopert.jpgResults of today’s hearing: Matt & Judy have until Friday to prepare their last-round defense.

Final hearing July 6th. Cooper’s lawyer said that it’s his intention to accept the civil penalty. When asked by reporters outside, Matt Cooper said that he’d “rather not” have Time turn over documents to free him, but that the decision was up to the corporation.

“There’s no shame or dishonor in fighting all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States and then complying with a lawful court order if that’s what Time chooses to do,” Cooper said. “On balance I think I’d prefer that Time not turn over the documents, but Time can make that decision for itself, and I think it’s an honorable one whatever they decide.”
