The Reporters Committee and a coalition of news organizations filed a letter in the Michael Cohen search warrant case in the Southern District of New York.  The letter objects to a motion by Cohen and intervenors President Donald Trump and The Trump Organization to file their objections to a special master’s recommendations under seal and ex parte.  The media coalition agreed with the federal prosecutor in the case that Cohen and the intervenors should be permitted to redact and file under seal only those portions of their submissions that would reveal the substance of documents over which they continue to assert attorney-client privilege and work product privilege.  The letter also stresses the importance of protecting the public’s right of access in this high profile case.
