The Paper Chase

The White House refuses to release any of Judge John Roberts' papers from when he worked in the US Solicitor General's office from 1989-93.

But the National Archives is releasing some of his work for the government, and the Reagan Library is considering a request for documents from Senators who will be part of Judge Roberts' confirmation process.

There is a long standing argument that papers from the Solicitor General's office do not clearly reflect a lawyer's personal opinion -- but merely his work for a client -- in this case the Bush I administration.

The National Archives have released one batch of papers from Judge Roberts' time as a speical assistant to the Attorney General during the Reagan administration. (ABC)
