|Cases related to terrorism often pose unusual and challenging case-management issues for the courts. Evidence or arguments may be classified; witnesses or the jury may require special security measures; attorneys’ contacts with their clients may be diminished; other challenges may present themselves.|
The purpose of this Federal Judicial Center resource is to document methods federal judges have employed to meet these challenges so that judges facing the challenges can learn from their colleagues’ experiences. The information presented is based on a review of case files and news media accounts and on interviews with the judges.
Lessons learned from these case studies are summarized in a companion publication, National Security Case Management: An Annotated Guide.
