TO THE HONORABLE JUDGE OF SAID COURT:
The United States of America, by and through the United States Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, files this Motion to Unseal the information in this cause and would show the Court as follows:
On September 26, 2007, the Court, upon the Motion of the United States in the above-styled and -numbered cause, issued an order sealing the information, plea agreement and related documents for cause shown. The Order required that the information and related documents be unsealed only upon order of the Court.
On September 10, 2008, the Grand Jury returned an indictment against the co-conspirators of the defendant listed above, and, as a result, the Government has successfully concluded its investigation of others involved in the charged conduct. Accordingly, the basis for sealing the aforementioned documents no longer exists. In addition, the Government will be required to produce some of the sealed documents to the indicted defendants in satisfaction of its discovery obligations in the ensuing prosecution.
For these reasons, the United States respectfully requests that this Court
order that the information, plea agreement and related documents be unsealed,
along with the original Motion to Seal and the Court's Order granting that Motion.
WESTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
