A U.S. district court judge in Evansville, Ind. said he will open portions of plea agreements that were sealed in a number of federal criminal cases. He also signed off on a plan that required the U.S. attorney’s office to post public notice when it files a motion to seal any future plea agreements. The deal had been worked out by federal prosecutors and the Evansville Courier and Press, which had protested the sealings. (8/15/05)
