Docket Text: MEMORANDUM & ORDER as to (12-Cr-185-05) Jeremy Hammond. Defendant Jeremy Hammond (“Defendant” or “Hammond”) has moved under 28 U.S.C. Section 455 to disqualify this Court from presiding in this action [dkt. no. 30]. Defendant claims that an appearance of partiality and an appearance of financial interest are too strong to be disregarded because (1) online postings purport to show that Thomas J. Kavaler, this Court’s husband, is an alleged victim of some of the charged offense conduct, and (2) Mr. Kavaler’s law firm represents, in unrelated matters, “other prominent victims” of some of the charged offense conduct. For the reasons that follow, the motion is DENIED…[See Memorandum & Order]… III. CONCLUSION: Upon review of the record, Defendant has failed to carry his substantial burden of showing that a reasonable observer, with knowledge and understanding of the relevant facts, would “entertain significant doubt that justice would be done absent recusal,” Lauersen, 348 F.3d at 334. Finding otherwise on a record as suspect as here would only encourage supporters of this defendant-or other defendants-to allege unsubstantiated conflicts of interest against any of my brothers and sisters of the Court until no judge remained qualified to hear his case. Therefore, accepting Defendant’s invitation for recusal in this case would actually undercut the very policy Defendant prays this Court to sustain-namely, promoting public confidence in the Judiciary. Accordingly, Defendant’s motion to disqualify [Dkt. no. 30] is DENIED. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Loretta A. Preska on 2/21/2013)

Docket Text: MEMO ENDORSEMENT as to Jeremy Hammond on re: Protective Order. The Government respectfully proposes that, in light of the issues regarding discovery raised by the defense at today’s conference and in its November 12, 2012 bail application, the Court’s May 29, 2012 Protective Order in this case be modified as set forth below. Specifically, the Government proposes removing the provision that restricts the defendant’s ability to review protected materials outside of the presence of counselor counsel’s staff. Accordingly paragraph 2(b) of the May 29, 2012 Protective Order should be amended to provide as follows: 2(b) “Shall be maintained in a safe and secure manner and shall not be disclosed in any form by the defendant or his counsel except as set forth in paragraph 2(c) below;”. ENDORSEMENT: SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Loretta A. Preska on 11/21/2012)
