CBS News reports:
The federal judge overseeing the case against former President Donald Trump related to the 2020 presidential election issued a protective order Friday limiting the use and disclosure of “sensitive” material moving forward, imposing a narrower set of restrictions than prosecutors had sought.
Chutkan sided with prosecutors on several details related to the order, including a request that all recordings, transcripts and reports of witness testimony should be considered “sensitive” information. She also gave the government wide latitude to decide which records should be considered sensitive and thus restricted.
Chutkan also accepted prosecutors’ request that Trump’s lawyers review any notes he takes about sensitive material to ensure they don’t include personal identifiable information. She denied a request from Trump’s team to broaden the number of people who could have access to the discovery material.
