CR No: 07-0732-SI CR MISC. NO.: 03-271-MMC UNSEALING APPLICATION AND PROPOSED ORDER
The United States, by and through Joseph P. Russoniello, United States Attorney, and Jeffrey D. Nedrow, Assistant United States Attorney, hereby moves the Court for an order unsealing the immunity order served upon Barry Bonds in connection with his 2003 grand jury testimony in the Balco grand jury investigation. The United States had previously requested sealing of this order because at the time the immunity order was signed, disclosure of the appearance of this individual before the grand jury would have been inappropriate as a grand jury matter and would have substantially impaired the criminal investigation. As the defendant's appearance and testimony before the grand jury has long been public knowledge, the government no longer has an investigative need in maintaining secrecy with respect to the appearance of this UNITED STATES' MOTION TO UNSEAL IMMUNITY ORDER AND PROPOSED ORDER CR NO.: 07-0732-SI CR MISC. NO.: 03-271-MMC

witness before the Balco grand jury. The immunity order for Barry Bonds was captioned under CR MISC. NO.: 03-271.
