Court Halts Edwards Tape Retrieval

A North Carolina court has halted the retrieval of a John Edwards sex tape after a former aide to the presidential candidate balked at a judge's demand that a security officer travel to get it.

The North Carolina Court of Appeals issued a stay on Tuesday without giving a reason. Former Edwards loyalist Andrew Young had appealed a judge's order that required a security official accompany Young to collect the video from a safety deposit box in Atlanta.

Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones has ordered that Young's copies of the tape be turned over so they can be placed under seal. Jones has threatened Young with penalties if he doesn't.

Young's attorneys have argued that requiring an escort was tantamount to an unreasonable search and seizure.

    Why the heck doesn't the idiot just turn over the tape and end the childish nonsense. He and his wife look like 2 children on TV trying to make Edwards and the mistress look stupid. Why keep someone else's sex tape...unless he and the MRS like to view it...duh?!
