Marathon: Congrats to Justice George O’Toole for Telling the Truth November 6, 2016 by Dalia Mae 33 Comments sealed-envelope2Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and a sealed document by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB
There has been a very exciting development in the Tsarnaev case. I got this news from a friend of Josée Lépine, who has spent every penny she can spare purchasing court documents. (You, too, can impoverish yourself this way, regarding any federal case, at PACER.gov) The new piece of vital information came in a release of court documents that were, until now, under seal. That is why I’m thanking Justice O’Toole, as it does appear – incredibly — that a judge has so much discretion that he can withhold, or release, any document in the case. George O’Toole is a justice of the of federal district court of Assachusetts. (I’m calling it that until Jahar’s case is properly adjudicated). The good judge has now released an amazing motion that was filed in court by the defense team. It shows that the government was surveilling the older brother Tamerlan in 2011. Originally O’Toole withheld more than a thousand documents. This meant that the public could not use the information contained therein in its evaluation of what was happening at Dzhokhar (Jahar) Tsarnaev’s trial. That media-hyped trial ran from March to April, 2015, two years after the Marathon bombing.

What do you mean "Will it lead to justice"?
He was found guilty and sentenced to death. Now it's just waiting for the appeals process to finish so he can be executed. The releasing of case files has no bearing on the outcome.
