Redacted Defense Motions

The Defense has received authorization to make its motions available to the public. The Defense’s effort to publish its motions is designed to be responsive to concerns raised by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and the Center for Constitutional Rights. Each organization believed that the lack of access to documents filed in this proceeding resulted in the public not being adequately informed.

The Defense believes that the vast majority of the parties’ filings should be made public. However, the Government has opposed the public filing of motions due to concerns over revealing protected information. In response to the Government’s concerns, the Defense has voluntarily redacted its motions in areas where the Government opposes public release of the referenced information.
