Ripped From the Headlines: Mystery of the Mar-a-Lago Docs & the Special Master
Dr. Maura R. Grossman, Hon. Kristen L Mix and Mary Mack
About this talk
Former President Donald J. Trump filed a motion to appoint a Special Master to review the material seized by the FBI from Mar-A-Lago. The stated purpose of the review by the Special Master is to remove nonrelevant and personal items and documents for return, and to sequester potentially privileged and classified documents.
What is a Special Master? How does one get appointed? Who does a Special Master report to? What are the rules of the road in interacting with a Special Master? What do their reports look like, and are they appealable? What qualifications does a Special Master have to have? Who pays for the Special Master? This and more!
The FBI has been working with a filter team to identify items to sequester or return for over two weeks now. What does this mean and what happens if the Special Master disagrees with the decisions of the filter team?
Join Dr. Maura R. Grossman, Special Master, and the Hon. Kristen L Mix, Magistrate Judge, D. Colorado, for a fireside chat on this timely topic, moderated by Mary Mack, CEO and Chief Legal Technologist at EDRM.
