Superior Court Judge Allen Baddour has had two weeks to consider whether lawyers for two murder suspects should get broader access to records of calls to the Crime Stoppers program.
Demario Atwater and Laurence Lovette are accused of killing University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson in March 2008.
Defense lawyers argue they should see all information that would be helpful to their case, not just what authorities consider relevant.
Prosecutors argue that broader access to the Crime Stoppers information would expose the identities of callers who are promised anonymity.
