UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SUPPLEMENT TO UNITED STATES' MOTION TO
On February 24, 1998, the United States filed a motion to compel defendantsto produce certain original audio tapes for use at trial. In their opposition,defendants suggested that they did not need to produce the tapes, in part, becausethey were "agreeable to allowing" the United States "reasonable access to[defendants] records and documents, including the original tapes." See Defs.Response at 6 (filed March 3, 1998). In considering the motion to compel, the Courtshould be aware, as evidenced by the attached letters, that defendants have nowrefused the United States access to inspect any tapes of their city council or utility board meetings, even though such tapes are otherwise publicly available underStilwells own City Charter. See Art. XI, § 123(b).
