The court ruled on April 10 that the Boston College tapes, which contain interviews with members of the IRA and loyalist death squads, should be handed over.
The project director, Ed Moloney, and his researcher, Anthony McIntyre, resisted the attempts, and had hoped the Supreme Court would overturn a Boston federal court decision to hand the tapes over.
The tapes were part of the Belfast Project which was supposed to provide students and historians studying the Six-County Troubles.
