Judges Guide to Keeping Secrets

Robert Timothy Reagan has written a guide for
the Federal Judiciary Center on how judges can
protect government secrets in the courtroom.

The handbook, entitled Keeping Government Secrets:
A Pocket Guide for Judges on the State-Secrets Privilege,
the Classified Information Procedures Act, and Court Security
Officers, "is designed to familiarize federal judges with statutes
and procedures established to help public courts protect
government secrets when courts are called upon to do so.
The guide provides information about the Classified Information
Procedures Act (CIPA), information security officers, and secure
storage facilities."
