Press attorney contests DOJ argument to keep records confidential

From Times-News: GRAHAM — An attorney representing the Alamance News has filed a motion in response to the U.S Department of Justice’s argument against providing documents covered by a joint confidentiality and protective order in its lawsuit against Sheriff Terry Johnson.

North Carolina Press Association attorney Amanda Martin representing Boney Publishers, which operates The Alamance News, a weekly newspaper in Graham, filed a motion on Oct. 16 stating, “The United States’ Response is long on words and rhetoric but short on authority, Indeed, the United States has offered no binding or even persuasive authority that this Court has the power to wholesale remove from the public eye essentially all documents that either were made or received by the defendant simply because they arguably have relevance to this case.
