LOS -14
LOM -2
PHX -s
SCD -1
Subpoenas for telephone monitor recordings continue to present a major
security problem for institutions in that master reels taken out of inventory
by subpoena requests leave institutions with small number of tapes available
for use. U.S. Attys and agents are in no hurry to replace tapes.
However, the U.S. Attorneys Office in San Diego (Southern District of
Calfiornia) recently sent a memo to the Warden at MCC stating that under
Rule 16 FRCrP it was sufficient for the BOP to make a copy of the calls from
the master reel and hold that cassette copy as a "duplicate original" and return
the master reel to inventory. We have declined to pursue this remedy to
inventory problems as it contradicts the procedure established in the
Director's earlier memorandum.
HEARING S/fRIALS/DECISIONS:

DANNIE MARTIN/SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE V. RISON ET AL., 9TH CIRCUIT,
NO. 90-16122, ORDER OF DISMISSAL. ON APRIL 28, 1992, THE 9TH CIRCUIT
COURT OF APPEALS IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA ENTERED A ONE PAGE ORDER OF
DISMISSAL IN THE ABOVE CAPTIONED CASE. THE COURT NOTED PLAINTIFF/APPELLANT DANNIE MARTIN WAS ON PAROLE, AND NO LONGER SUBJECT OT THE BOP REGULATIONS AT ISSUE IN THE CASE. THE COURT DECIDED THE ISSUES ON APPEAL WERE
MOOT AND DISMISSED THE APPEAL.
IN AN UNUSUAL MOVE, THE CIRCUIT COURT VACATED THE DISTRICT COURT OPINION
BY U.S. DISTRICT COURT JUDGE CHARLES LEGGE (N.D. CAL.). JUDGE LEGGE'S
OPINION IS CITED AT 741 F.SUPP 1406 (N.D. CAL 1990). BECAUSE THE 9TH
CIRCUIT ORDERED THE DISTRICT COURT OPINION VACATED, JUDGE LEGGE'S OPINION
CANNOT BE CITED AS PRECEDENT.
THE PRACTICAL EFFECT OF THE 9TH CIRCUIT'S ORDER IS THE PARTIES ARE BACK IN
THEIR ORIGINAL POSITIONS. THE BOP REGULATIONS WHICH WERE CHALLENGED ARE
STILL GOOD LAW AND WILL BE ENFORCED BY THE AGENCY. PLAINTIFF'S DO NOT
HAVE ANY LITIGATION PENDING IN COURT.

UPDATE

Thornburgh et a1., No. CV 92-186 MRP(T):

As of this date, the defendants at MDC-LA have not been
served. Correspondence has been sent to the AUSA asking
him to pursue a motion to dismiss citing Rule 4(j) as
authority.
Chamberlain v, Pent. of Justice, CV 92-0833-SVW(JG):
As of this date, the defendants at MDC-LA have not been
served.
A Rule 4(j) motion is being prepared by the
AUSA.
Chesney v. Seifert, CV 92-2418-WMB(JG):
As of this date, Warden Seifert has not been served.
Because the issues have been presented via BP-9, the
1

research for the litigation report has been done.
Jones v. United states, CV 91-5776-JGD:
This case was dismissed by the plaintiff in accordance
with Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(a)(1)(ii).
Jones y. United states, CV 92-2714-IH:
This case has been refiled. Only one issue has been refiled (premises liability); however, the plaintiff has
attempted to exhaust the administrative procedure
regarding the medical malpractice issue.
Matthews y. Seifert, CV 92-0267-HLH:
According to' the U.S. Attorney's Office, criminal
dockets, the petition was not served on their office.
Racinowski y. Seifert, CV 91-6061-RSWL(CT):
Ac'cording to the AUSA, the petition was dismissed.
Saahir y. Seifert, CV 91-4740-AWT(K):
Case was dismissed by order of Judge Tashima on February
18, 1992.
Trimble y. united states, CV 91-6615-DT:
The litigation report has been completed and sent to the
AUSA. A motion to dismiss will be filed regarding lack
of .subject matter jurisdiction, insufficiency of service
of process, and failure to state a claim.

SUBPOENAS:
Total for May, 1992: 14. The materials sought were medical
records, psychological records, telephone recordings, and testimony
from MDC-LA employees.

COURT ORDERS:
Total for May, 1992: 10.
Of this number, three were for
forensic evaluations. The issues ranged from medical care to place
of confinement to psychological evaluations.
We have seen an
increase in calls from the FPD's Office as well as the private
defense bar concerning our procedures.
This is significant to
2

demonstrate that the lines of communication are becoming more
fixed.

SPECIAL PROJECTS:
1)
Incident Reports were reviewed and reports written
regarding the assault on staff by several USP-Lompoc inmates
transferred here due to the work stoppage.
2)
Research and drafting continue for the paper on practical
applications on the Code of Federal Regulations.

MISCELLANEOUS:
1)
Articles have been written and submitted for the May
issue of the Freeway, the institution newsletter. I submitted 2
articles while Ed submitted one on wellness.
2)

The following group was given a tour of the institution:
•

A group of German attorneys, investigators, and a
judge toured the institution and interviewed an
inmate.

3)
I continue to sQbmit cases to Sherree sturgis, Regional
counsel, Southeast Region, for publication in the Legal Eagle.
Twelve cases were sent in May.
We have been asked to perform some research to prepare
4)
for unit Management program review.
5)

I attended the following training:
•

Personnel Management for Managers

•

Introduction to Supervision

6)
I May, 1992, we processed 21 requests from attorneys
asking that their interpreter, investigator, paralegal, or a
material witness be allowed into the institution with them for the
purpose of a legal visit.

REQUESTS/SPECIAL NOTES:
According to Pretrial Services, interpreters from the court
pool are not employees, nor are they vouchered.
They are given
identification cards as interpreters for the u.s. courts. Because
3

no security clearance is done, this situation may give rise to
serious security breaches.
