We begin with AE20, regarding the time for the defense to respond to government motions. The court thinks its moot.
Bormann is back, and doesn’t touch AE20’s mootness. Instead she pushes forward with attorney-client matters---their merits, or ones surrounding their merits. In any event, since October 2011, she has been unable to send written communications to her client, Walid bin Attash. And there’s no question that what she writes to bin Attash is privilege-protected. Nevertheless, the government’s prying eyes are always eager to peek into those missives---so she doesn’t send them.
