UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
March 4, 2009
WALEED SAID BN SAID ZAID, PETITIONER,
BARACK OBAMA, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: John D. Bates United States District Judge
Respondents in this case have produced a declassified factual return. See Case Management Order (Dec. 22, 2008) at § I.A (dkt. ent. #96). According to respondents, the declassified return may be shared only with the petitioner himself in light of its "protected" status. At present, then, petitioner's counsel may not share the declassified return with other individuals -- for example, experts or other witnesses -- who may need to review it in pre-hearing preparations. Respondents appear to have recognized the difficulty with this position and they have represented that they are reevaluating it. Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that respondents shall provide a status report, in writing and by not later than March 11, 2009, updating the Court with regard to their position on this matter.
