A documentary filmmaker has been given more time to decide whether to comply with a subpoena that he turn over outtakes from a film on environmental litigation against Chevron in Ecuador.

Southern District of New York Judge Lewis A. Kaplan Thursday denied filmmaker Joseph A. Berlinger’s request for a stay pending appeal of an earlier order approving the subpoenas for footage from his movie “Crude,” but nonetheless gave the filmmaker 10 more days to comply.
