Loughner lawyers respond to document release try
TUCSON -- Attorneys for the man charged in the 2011 Tucson shooting rampage that wounded former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords asked a federal judge to seal their response over remaining documents in the case.
Monday was the deadline set by U.S. District Judge Larry Burns for prosecutors and defense lawyers for Jared Loughner to respond to a request to release about 200 unsealed and-or redacted documents.
About 2,700 pages of investigative papers were released in late March.
Prosecutors say 32 pages should remain under seal because they contain information on a grand jury member, confidential reports from the Bureau of Prisons about Loughner or confidential correspondences between attorneys.
Loughner was sentenced in November to seven consecutive life sentences in the shooting that left six people dead and 13 others wounded, including Giffords.
