Attorneys seeking details about the U.S. government's investigation into WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange argued Monday that the Department of Justice lacks justification for continuing to keep its case completely sealed. Lawyers for the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, a nonprofit organization representing journalists' interests, raised the claim throughout a 12-page memorandum filed in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, where the group initiated legal proceedings last month seeking access to sealed documents related to the Justice Department's pending prosecution of the Australian-born WikiLeaks boss.
