DEFENDANT'S MOTION AND ORDER TO RELEASE PASSPORT TO
DEFENDANTS ARJINDERPAL SEKHON AND DALJIT SEKHON
DATE: April 30, 2012
Defendants, by and through their undersigned counsel, hereby move the Court for an order allowing the short-term release of passports belonging to Defendants Arjinderpal Sekhon and Daljit Sekhon and authorizing the Clerk of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California to release Defendants' passports to the Law Offices of Johnny L. Griffin, III, for the limited purpose of making photocopies for the Defendants. The reason for this request is to provide Defendants with photocopies of their passports for their use in connection with a land transaction in India.
Specifically, the Defendants are struggling financially as a result of Defendant Arjinderpal Sekhon's medical care. Defendants have joint ownership of real estate in India that they are selling to help ease the financial hardship related to Defendant Arjinderpal Sekhon's high medical costs. To facilitate the real estate transaction, Defendants will need photocopies of both of their passports.
The passports will be used only for the limited purpose of making photocopies. Counsel for Defendants will not release the original passports to either Defendant, and instead will make a copy and provide the copies to Defendants. Defendant Arjinderpal Sekhon's Passport Number is 056361875 and Defendant Daljit Sekhon's Passport Number is 459102743. The Law Offices of Johnny L. Griffin, III will surrender both of the passports back to the Clerk's Office within 3 court days of the passports being released. The Government has been advised of these requests and has no objection.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
