For Their Eyes Only

Tentative pact would seal some records in Symington bankruptcy case

"I don't think I would agree to it with Coopers & Lybrand," Dake says.
The trend toward secrecy in the Symington bankruptcy case has spilled out of U.S. Bankruptcy Court and into U.S. District Court, where Symington is contesting the pension funds' request to review financial documents the governor had turned over to a federal grand jury investigating his finances.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles, which is conducting the grand jury probe into the governor's finances, has agreed to allow the pension funds to copy Symington's financial records in their possession--if Symington agrees.

The pension funds filed suit in U.S. District Court to force Symington to allow access to the records. All pleadings in the case have since been filed under seal.
