17     Stuart Sears, attorney for Jacob Applebaum, contacts Mr. Banke by telephone again in an attempt to confirm whether anything else was publicly available now or would be added to the public docket in response to the motion for public docketing. He was informed that there was no other public information for any of the other ec dockets, that there was not a sub-list within those docket numbers indicating which documents had been filed in those dockets, and that the Clerk’s Office at the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, understood that it was now in compliance with the May 4 Order. When Sears asked if it was possible to see a list of any other electronic communications orders that were requested or issued in December 2010 or January 2011, which might not be reflected on this new “ec” running list, Mr. Banke informed Mr. Sears that the Clerk’s Office had not previously kept a running list of electronic communications orders or requests and that it had just created this “ec” docketing system and this new “ec” running list for electronic communications cases.

16     Stuart Sears, attorney for Jacob Applebaum goes to the Clerk’s office at the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division to view the running list reflecting the documents filed in this case [Misc. No. 10GJ3793, No. 1:11DM3 (Mag. Buchanan), No. 1:11EC3 ]. He was assisted again by the supervisor, Mr. Banke. The running list Sears was shown was almost identical to the previous case list that he had seen on May 6, which merely showed the existence of the four ec cases. The only change in the list was that, for 1:11-ec-3, there were now two new notations directly under the case number: “12/14/10 Under Seal Application and Order; 1/5/11 Motion and Order to unseal order of 12/14/10 (granted).” No notations were added to any of the other ec cases. In addition, the list now included the existence of additional 1:11-ec cases, running from 1:11-ec-5 through 1:11-ec-9. There were no notations or information regarding these additional cases. See jpegs. During this conversation, Sears was advised by Mr. Banke that there was no other running list being kept in connection with the case. When he inquired whether any search warrants connected with this case were being kept on a list to be tracked, Sears was informed that search warrants are not listed to a specific case number, but rather are kept separately on a list of all search warrants being filed, regardless of case number.

11     On May 11, 2011, Stuart Sears, attorney for Jacob Applebaum calls Mr. Banke, operations supervisor at the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, by telephone. He [Banke] confirmed that there was no other running list other than the computer screen he had previously shown me that showed the existence of the 1:11-ec-1, ec-2, ec-3, and ec-4 cases. Mr. Banke also advised Mr. Sears that the Clerk’s Office was not maintaining any other list of documents in connection with this case. Upon questioning, he advised that there was no book, ledger or any other list being kept regarding this case. He also stated that it was his understanding that what the Clerk’s Office had done regarding the docketing was in compliance with Magistrate Buchanan’s May 4 Order.

6     Stuart Sears, attorney for Jacob Applebaum,went to the Clerk’s Office and asked to see the running list for this case [Misc. No. 10GJ3793, No. 1:11DM3 (Mag. Buchanan), No. 1:11EC3 ]. He was “originally informed that there was nothing for the public to view regarding this case.” He then “spoke to the operations supervisor for the Clerk’s Office, Richard Banke. He told me that there was no running list for specific cases. He [Banke] then showed me on a computer screen all that existed regarding this matter, which was a one-page computer entry listing four “EC” cases—EC 1, EC 2, EC 3, and EC 4. The entire screen only depicted a list of four cases, each entitled “USA v. Under Seal.” The general heading of the page was “Case Assignment History Report.” The cases were listed in numerical order from 1:11-ec-1 through 1:11-ec-4. The only other relevant information available on the screen was when the case had been created and to which judge it had been assigned. Upon questioning, Mr. Banke advised Mr. Sears that there was no other information or documents available to be viewed in connection with this case.

4     ORDERED that case 10-gj-3793 is hereby transferred to new case 1:11-ec-3, which remain under seal except as to the previously unsealed 2703(d) Order of 12/14/2010 (“Twitter Order”), and docketed on the running list in the usual manner. Signed by Magistrate Judge Theresa Carroll Buchanan on 5/4/2011.
