TUCSON, Ariz. — Federal prosecutors say some of the unredacted documents
that followed the 2011 Tucson shooting rampage that wounded former U.S. Rep.
Gabrielle Giffords should remain sealed.
Monday was the deadline set by U.S. District Judge Larry Burns for prosecutors
and defense lawyers for Jared Loughner to respond to a request to release
remaining documents in the case.
Attorneys for several news organizations asked Burns to unseal the documents or
“disclose any redacted information that no longer satisfies the First Amendment
standard for secrecy.”
About 2,700 pages of investigative papers were released in late March.
Loughner was sentenced in November to seven consecutive life sentences, plus
He pleaded guilty to 19 federal charges in the Tucson shooting that left six
people dead and 13 others wounded, including Giffords.
