Judge Orders Release of Warrant Materials in Suspected Serial Killer Case
June 2018 - Court unseals over 170 pages of warrant materials in Golden State Killer case upon media request to unseal the investigatory materials.   Duffy Carolan represented The Associated Press, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Digital First Media, Sacramento Bee, San Francisco Chronicle and ABC News in the group's effort taking place over three days while the Court took oral argument and considered various redaction proposals ostensible to protect Defendant Joseph DeAngelo’s fair trial rights.   The Court ultimately ruled that the public’s First Amendment right to judicial records required disclosure of the materials pertaining 13 homicide cases against Mr. DeAngelo, while rape cases beyond the statute of limitations are to remain sealed for now.   Release of the materials on June 1, gave the public its first detailed look at state’s case against Mr. DeAngelo.   See The New York Times  The Washington Post  East Bay Times  The New York Times  San Francisco Chronicle.
