GOOD CAUSE HAVING BEEN SHOWN, it is hereby ordered that appellate counsel, Katherine Alfieri, shall be permitted full access to and permission to copy and possess any and all sealed documents in the above captioned case. Counsel is further authorized to order the transcript of and receive the transcription of any and all sealed proceedings in the above captioned case.
Counsel shall maintain the sealed nature of all materials unless otherwise directed by court order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Defendant Gonzalez has also filed a "response to def. Paiz's motion to access and copy all sealed documents and obtain the transcription of all sealed proceedings" (Dkt. No. 358). In the "response," Gonzalez requests "that he be provided the same accomodations." Because this is essentially an improperly-filed motion that did not allow for a full response from the government, it is stricken. Gonzalez may re-file the request with accompanying support, to which the government may respond.
