By FindLaw Staff on August 20, 2009 5:20 PM

In an appeal from a district court order granting an application by a newspaper to access sealed wiretap applications relating to the investigation of a prostitution ring, the order is reversed where: 1) petitioner did not show good cause to unseal the wiretap-related documents pursuant to Title III of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968; and 2) petitioner did not have a First Amendment right to gain access to wiretap applications.  (Amended opinion)
