UNITED STATES v. ATLANTIC CONTAINER LINE

February 3, 1981.

United States
v.
Atlantic Container Line, Ltd., et al. United States v. Philip E. Bates, et al.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: GREEN

 The objections before the Court are valid and compelling ones.The objecting parties describe how disclosure would cause strain in and adversity to their careers, possibly creating intolerable job situations and job loss. Further, the parties emphasize and the Court recognizes the chilling effect which disclosure would have on future Grand Jury testimony because of the reliance of the parties on the secrecy of the Grand Jury proceedings. Accordingly, the evidence before the Court indicates that disclosure would not be appropriate at this time for those parties who have objected and the Court will withhold their Grand Jury materials at this time.

 Having completed its determination of the need for continued secrecy, this Court will transfer the rest of the Grand Jury materials to the Southern District of New York for a determination by that Court as to the particularized need for disclosure.
