Fairholme case filings:
05/13/2016 - Document 323
05/13/2016 - Document 324
Judge Sweeney entered an order on Fri., May 13, approving the agreement between Ms. Robinson and the government. Because the government consented to unsealing the documents Ms. Robinson wanted, she withdrew her Motion (Doc. 321) on Thurs., May 19.
05/20/2016 - Document 325
Judge Sweeney entered an Order directing the government to provide her with unredacted printed copies of the documents Fairholme asked her to compel the government to produce six months ago. A copy of that Order, entered on Fri., May 20.
For our reference, Fairholme's Motion to Compel (Doc. 270) was filed on Nov. 23, 2015, and a redacted copy of that Motion (Doc. 272) was docketed on Dec. 7, 2015. The government opposed (Doc. 284) Fairholme's request on Jan. 21, 2016, and a recated copy of that objection (Doc. 301) was docketed on Feb. 19, 2016.
05/20/2016 - Document 326 (Filed Under Seal)
Under seal, Judge Sweeney issued her Order (Doc. 326) determining whether the Protective Order was violated on Fri., May 20. Judge Sweeney has asked the parties to submit a joint status report today advising her if the order should remain sealed.
05/25/2016 - Document 327
In the Motion, the government asks Judge Sweeney to clarify her May 20 Order (Doc. 325). Specifically, the government wants to know if the Affidavits previously submitted by Christopher H. Dickerson (Doc. 301 at A58-A67) and David R. Pearl (Doc. 301 at A68-A86) are sufficient for her to determine if the deliberative process privilege applies to various documents Fairholme wants. If Judge Sweeney wants more, the government asks for more time to supply additional affidavits.
05/25/2016 - Document 328
In the Order, Judge Sweeney tells the government (i) she wants copies of all unredacted Fairholme wants today; (ii) additional affidavits about the deliberative process privilege are probably unnecessary; and (iii) additional affidavits are necessary if the government is continuing to invoke the presidential communications privilege.
Perry case filings:
05/25/2016 - Document 1615013
Following the government's agreement in Fairholme v. U.S. to unseal various documents at Ms. Robinson's behest, Perry and Fairholme delivered copies of 15 of those documents to the D.C. Circuit together with a request to take judicial notice of those items.
Robinson v. FHFA case filings:
05/23/2016 - Document 47
05/25/2016 - Document 48
Following the government's agreement in Fairholme v. U.S. to unseal various documents at Ms. Robinson's behest, Ms. Robinson and the government asked the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky to unseal Ms. Robinson's Amended Complaint (Doc. 15) and her Consolidated Reply (Doc. 30) to FHFA and Treasury's Motions to Dismiss.
12/23/2015 - Document 15
An unsealed copy of Ms. Robinson's Amended Complaint.
02/11/2016 - Document 30
A copy of Ms. Robinson's Consolidated Response.
Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation case filings:
05/25/2016 - Document 36
Ms. Robinson advised the MDL Panel this week that her Amended Complaint in Robinson v. FHFA is no longer under seal and may be freely referenced in open court.
Piszel case filings:
05/11/2016 - Document 61
A copy of the National Black Chamber of Commerce's Supplemental Brief filed in the Federal Circuit on Wed., May 11.

New filing in the Fairholme case.
Peter Chapman writes, "Jennifer Orr, Esq. -- one of Ms. Robinson's lawyers at Taft Stettinius & Hollister that represents her in the lawsuit filed in Kentucky -- filed a Motion (Doc. 321) today asking Judge Sweeney to unseal documents obtained by Fairholme and referenced in Ms. Robinson's amended complaint. Because the Motion makes reference to confidential discovery materials it was filed under seal and is not available to the public at this time. The docket entry suggests that Ms. Robinson is asking for dozens of documents to be unsealed. Responses to Ms. Robinson's Motion are due by May 31, 2016."
