The harassment scandal that rocked the North Carolina Democratic Party is working its way through the courts. However, don't expect to hear anything else about it for a month or so.

Monday, a Wake County judge effectively shut out the media.

Judge Howard Manning said that he won't make public any of the information learned in the process known as discovery where each side learns what it can about the opposing side's argument.

A former staffer at the state Democratic Party is suing for defamation and breach of a confidentiality settlement after being fired for alleging he'd been harassed by the party's former executive director.
