United States v. Aref

United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
533 F.3d 72 (2008)

Facts

Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain (defendants) were charged with conspiracy and attempt to commit money laundering and to provide material support to a designated terrorist organization. The government (plaintiff) conducted a sting operation and alleged that Aref and Hossain had agreed to work with a cooperator to conceal the source of $50,000. The cooperator told Aref and Hossain that the money came from the sale of a missile to a terrorist group called Jaish-e-Mohammed and that the group planned to target the missile at New York City. Before trial, the government sought two protective orders restricting discovery of classified information pursuant to the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA). The district court granted the motions. Aref and Hossain appealed, arguing that the district court, by granting the protective orders, improperly denied them access to classified information during discovery.
