Here are some documents from the court's file in the Stewart Nozette espionage (attempted, for purposes of the charges) case.
1. The complaint, filed under seal on 10-16-2009. (1 page).
It starts the proceedings and is a placeholder keeping the case in the system until an indictment. It is filed unilaterally by the Justice Dept. or U.S. Attorney.
2. The affidavit supporting the complaint by an FBI agent.
This is to justify the issuance of a warrant of arrest and to support the complaint, which tracks the statute. (17 pages).
3. A paper attached to the complaint more specifically stating charges relating to the complaint prior to indictment.
4. The indictment. He was formally indicted by the grand jury yesterday and the case is now officially in the federal district court. (7 pages). It looks as if Reggie Walton, who presided over the Irving Lewis "Scooter"
Libby trial is going to be handling this one.
