Prosecutors seek to keep Bujak filings sealed

BOISE, Idaho — Prosecutors are seeking to keep the public from viewing some of their legal filings in a bankruptcy fraud case against a former Idaho prosecutor and current candidate for governor.
The U.S. attorney has filed five sealed motions in the past week in the case against Frank Bujak.
Bujak opposes sealing the motions.
U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge has not ruled on whether the filings can be kept from the public.
U.S. Attorney Wendy Olson told The Idaho Statesman she can’t discuss the reasoning behind sealing the filings. She says in general, it prevents evidence from being made public before being introduced at trial and protects individuals’ privacy.
Bujak has denied charges of bankruptcy fraud, concealment of assets, making a false statement under oath, money laundering and obstruction of justice.
