Obama's Supreme Court nominee's papers blocked from public review

National Law JournalThe executors of the papers of the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice William Brennan Jr. are blocking public access to the justice's file on high court nominee Merrick Garland, who clerked for Brennan in 1977 and 1978. The file, along with other documents relating to law clerks, case histories and correspondence, are part of the closed portion of Brennan's collection that will not be opened to the public until July 2017, the 20th anniversary of Brennan's death.

When the nominee's papers are blocked from public review, it usually means there's something either embarrassing or politically inconvenient in them.
