Senator Barkus and the Privileges of Rank


I have to wonder whether Judge Katherine Curtis routinely issues gag orders for every criminal investigation in Flathead County, especially without the attorney for the investigative target asking for one:

Monday, Corrigan told KCFW-TV that he could no longer discuss the investigation. The District Court administrator says all information in the case is sealed by order of Judge Katherine Curtis unless or until any charges are filed against Barkus.
Barkus’ attorney, Todd Glazier, says he doesn’t know anything about the order.
