Court to name special master to examine materials seized from Giuliani

Source: Politico

A federal judge has denied a request from President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani for the return of a trove of digital information the FBI seized in a raid on his Manhattan home and office last month as part of an investigation into potential violations of laws on lobbying for foreign entities.

However, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Oetken said in a written order Friday he will appoint an outside lawyer as a so-called special master to oversee the process of making sure investigators don’t get access to attorney-client privileged materials they are not entitled to.

“The Court agrees that the appointment of a special master is warranted here to ensure the perception of fairness,” Oetken wrote.

Prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan sought the special master appointment, citing a precedent from a similar seizure of information from former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in 2019.
