Seal This . . .

Nearly everything in the court's electronic record of James Giffen's criminal prosecution is beyond reach. Almost 200 pleadings and orders are in the docket but only a dozen can be viewed or downloaded, and the indictment isn't one of them. It's sealed tight, buttoned down, locked up. Or so it seemed just last week.

Then Cody Worthington from the District of Columbia said: "Well, apparently it’s not sealed in the case Grynberg vs. BP et al. . . it’s Exhibit 4 in that case . . .1:08-cv-00301-JDB. I just looked it up in Pacer and it’s available for anyone with an account and $2.40." Cody said he'd been keeping a copy of the Giffen indictment on his hard drive for awhile -- "collecting electronic dust." So he sent us a copy.

Sixty-five counts, seventy-five pages, hundreds of names, dates, and amounts. Thanks, Cody.

Download a copy of Exhibit 4 from the complaint in Grynberg et al v. BP P.L.C. et al (U.S. District Court District of Columbia (Washington, DC) Civil case #: 1:08-cv-00301-JDB) here.

A final note: Grynberg's suit was dismissed as to all defendants after they won orders to compel arbitration. Our original post about his civil complaint against BP, Statoil and British Gas and some of their current and former executives is here.
