US judge restricts sharing evidence against Nagin
NEW ORLEANS - A federal judge says Ray Nagin's attorneys must keep a log of who sees federal evidence against the former New Orleans mayor, and are restricted in how they may share such evidence.
The Times-Picayune reports that U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan's order is aimed at preventing public disclosure of others involved in the case.
Prosecutors say they don't plan to black out names and other sensitive information from the electronic communications, financial reports, tax returns, banking records, telephone records and other records.
Nagin is accused of taking bribes from contractors while he was mayor.
Defense attorney Robert Jenkins did not object to the government's request for the order.
He did not immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday from The Associated Press.
