A federal district judge declined to lift his order sealing the e-mails of a blackmailer to his victim, a former top aid to Hawaii’s governor. “The public interest lies in treating a crime victim with fairness and with respect to privacy,” said Judge Michael Seabright. The Associated Press had sought access to the documents because of reports they included information on official misconduct on state financed trips to the Philippines. (1/31/08)
