Court Extends Temporary Stay on Stem Cell Funding
On Monday, a three-judge panel in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., extended a temporary stay on a U.S. district court judge's preliminary injunction on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, allowing U.S. researchers to continue work on federally approved projects. The stay remains in place until a final ruling is issued on the legality of federally funding such research, which may not arrive for several weeks or months.
