Moussaoui: Government Lawyer Identified
Update: CBS provides the actual emails (pdf) which were released by the Judge today.
The New York Times identifies the Government lawyer in the Zacarias Moussaoui trial who violated the Court's sequestration order as Carla J. Martin, Senior Trial Attorney for the Transportation Security Administration. A hearing will be held tomorrow on the improper sharing of information with seven trial witnesses, as disclosed by prosectors in the trial earlier today.
Who is Carla J. Martin? She has appeared in Moussaoui pleadings before, such as this one (pdf), ironically seeking to prevent document disclosure to the defense. During the Pan Am flight 103 trial, she sought to close the courtroom during testimony of security procedures. (The Post-Standard (Syracuse, NY), 4/28/92, available on Lexis.com.) She sure doesn't seem like a stranger to the issues at hand.
