Judge Orders Nixon Grand Jury Testimony Unsealed

Chief Judge Royce C. Lamberth (D.D.C.) on Friday granted a petition to unseal President Richard M. Nixon's grand jury testimony from June 23 and 24, 1975, and associated materials of the Watergate Special Prosecution Force.  The documents are currently held under seal by the National Archives and Records Administration.

Judge Lamberth's order comes just months after the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum opened its new and permanent exhibit on Watergate this spring.

Judge Lamberth denied a petition in a related case on Friday to release more sealed Watergate documents, including trial documents and congressional testimony.
