UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SAN FRANCISCO DIVISION
On this date the Court considered the Motion to Establish Procedure for Crime Victim Notification Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3771, filed by the United States Department of Justice, Antitrust Division. Having considered the Motion and for good cause shown, the Court GRANTS the Motion and ORDERS that for any public court or parole proceeding involving the crime, or the release or escape of the accused in this case, the Antitrust Division may provide reasonable, accurate, and timely notice through its web site, http://www.usdoj.gov/atr, and through letters to lead counsel for the direct purchaser plaintiffs in the class action entitled In re Hydrogen Peroxide Antitrust Litigation, rather than individual notices to the crime victims of the hydrogen peroxide conspiracy.
Because there is a single victim of the sodium perborates conspiracy, it is practicable for the government to give direct notice to that victim.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
