WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2001 The federal judge overseeing trust reform at the Department of Interior is considering making public a potentially damaging court opinion regarding security of the tribal and Individual Indian Money (IIM) trusts. Special Master Alan Balaran submited his final report on computer security today to the court. U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth allowed it to be filed temporarily under seal in order to give the government time to correct any problems before he makes it public. Computer security affects both the tribal and individual trusts, which represent more than $3 billion in assets. Relevant Links:
