A federal judge says dozens of sealed court papers from a recent Chicago trial relating to the deadly 2008 Mumbai terror attack can be released.
Judge Harry Leinenweber's ruling today comes a month after a jury cleared Chicago businessman Tahawwur Rana of involvement in the 2008 siege in Mumbai, India.
The Pakistani-born Canadian was convicted of lesser charges, including providing material support to the Pakistani militant group blamed in those attacks.
The judge granted a government motion to promptly release 26 documents and four others after sensitive sections are blackened out; 39 other papers related to legal fees and similar matters will remain sealed.
Defence attorney Patrick Blegen told reporters the soon-to-be released documents won't provide much new detail not already made public.
