Court blocks publicity of bridge condition report

DETROIT — Matty Moroun, the owner of the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor, Ont. and Detroit won an extension of a restraining order that prevents a Michigan congressman from releasing a safety inspection report on the aging structure.

According to The Windsor Star, U.S. federal court grated the 10-day extension this week.

The bridge company is suing to prevent Rep. John Dingell from releasing the report, which was conducted in 2007.

The bridge claims that making the safety records public threatens security and violates a confidentiality agreement the bridge signed with the Michigan Department of Transportation before it allowed the inspection to take place.
