Protective Order Entered to Protect Against Disclosure of Information Regarding Immigration Detainees

U.S. Magistrate Judge P. Michael Mahoney has entered a protective order in a case over the adequacy of medical care provided to a now deceased Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainee.

Judge Mahoney’s protective order came after the defendants in a wrongful death suit were ordered to respond to interrogatories requesting personal information about other ICE detainees. Disclosure of personal information about ICE detainees is prohibited by 8 C.F.R. § 236.6.

The order requires the parties to mark each page containing protected material as “Subject to Protective Order.” Further, any documents deemed protected material must be filed under seal. See: Belbachir v. County of McHenry, USDC, N.D. Ill., No. 1:06-C-01392 (Sept. 19, 2007). The protective order is in PLN’s brief bank.
