OUELLETTE & MAULDIN COURT REPORTERS
THE COURT: As I understand it, this matter
is a request for an in camera inspection.
MR. FIERBERG: Judge, good morning. JamesFierberg on behalf of the Trustee. With me is my
colleague, Paul Avron. It's not an inspection, Judge,
it's a request for authority to take discovery from theU.S. Bureau of Prisons under seal.
THE COURT: Okay.
MR. FIERBERG: And this is an in camera
hearing because of the sensitivity of the matters
THE COURT: Is there anyone here for the
Bureau of Prisons?
MS. ALONSO: Good morning, Your Honor.
Grisel Alonso, Assistant United States Attorney. With
me here today is Richard Deaguiar, a senior attorney
with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Mr. Deaguiar will
be arguing the Government's position in this matter.We're here as an interested party.
THE COURT: All right. Well, basically I
have read the motions and I thought that under the
circumstances it was proper to do this in camera. The
matter of concern is whether or not the Bureau ofPrisons has any objection and whether or not there'ssome reason why this should not be allowed.
