Belfast Project: The Government Moves for Reconsideration

A hat tip to Chris Bray, who has posted the government’s motion for reconsideration of Judge Young’s order. I had noted the possibility of a government challenge to the order, but I’m a little surprised that the government wasn’t satisfied with what it got.

The government points out that Boston College had not reviewed the “non-IRA” interviews, or certain interviews that have not yet been transcribed, for responsiveness. I suppose that on general principles, the government is right to say that Boston College has an obligation at least to determine whether all of the interviews are responsive.
