In re Civil Beat Law Center for the Public Interest

The Law Center moved to unseal Defendant Daniel Seller’s sentencing memorandum and a motion by the Government filed under seal in United States v. Sellers, 19-CR-3 JMS RT.  In response, the Government argued that pretrial publicity from the disclosure would prejudice the imminent trial in United States v. Puana, 19-CR-15 JMS WRP, in which Daniel Sellers was expected to testify.  The case was assigned to Judge J. Michael Seabright.  The Law Center’s motion was filed under 22-MC-124.  On April 6, 2022, Judge Seabright ordered the sentencing documents unsealed.
