Well, the order only reads "by Joel Tenenbaum". this does NOT preclude Judge Gertner from further ordering the courtreporter to make an audiorecording for the purpose of the courtreporters business and order that the tapes be kept in secure esrow by that reporter instead of being reused.

That way, while not disobeying the 1st circuit decision, there will be a record for "further generations" once the case is over non the less.
