DEFENDANT’S NOTICE OF FILING OF AMENDED AND SUPPLEMENTAL EXHIBITS

Defendant hereby submits the attached amended Exhibits 5-6, and supplemental Exhibits 7-11, which are intended to accompany Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment.

Amended Exhibits 5 and 6 are corrected versions of the corresponding Exhibits 5 and 6 that were originally filed with Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment and should be substituted for them. Amended Exhibit 5 contains the names and other information about sixteen individuals who were inadvertently omitted from the original Exhibit 5 filed with Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment. See February 4, 2002 Supplemental Declaration of James S. Reynolds at 8. Amended Exhibit 6 contains hand-written corrections to mistakes or omissions that were due to clerical error in the original Exhibit 6. See amended Exhibit 6, at pages 1, 3, 15, 17, 25, 27, 46, 55, and 56 of 58; and pages 9, 11, 18, 25, and 54 of 60. Amended Exhibit 6 also omits duplicate pages which were inadvertently included in the original Exhibit 6.

Exhibits 7 and 8, referenced in the January 11, 2002 Declaration of James S. Reynolds, were inadvertently omitted from defendant’s original set of Exhibits. Exhibit 7 contains the information that the Department of Justice released to the public concerning the INS detainees prior to the filing of this lawsuit. See Reynolds Dec. 7. Similarly, Exhibit 8 contains the information that the Department of Justice released to the public prior to the filing of this lawsuit concerning the persons held on federal criminal charges. See Reynolds Dec. 8.

Exhibits 9 through 11 are the slip opinions cited in the Memorandum in Support of Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment and are provided for the Court’s convenience. Those slip opinions include the following three cases: Dickie v. Department of the Treasury, No. 86-649 (D.D.C. Mar. 31, 1987); Isley v. Executive Office for United States Attorneys, No. 96-0123 (D.D.C. Mar. 27, 1997); and Russell v. Barr, No. 92-2546 (D.D.C. Aug. 28, 1998). A fourth slip opinion cited in defendant’s Memorandum, Judicial Watch, Inc. v. United States Department of Justice, No. 97-2869 (D.D.C. Feb. 22, 2000), is not attached because that case is now reported at 102 F. Supp. 2d 6 (D.D.C. 2000).
