The Justice Department had no immediate comment, but court filings indicate that government lawyers made the broad assertion that the court lacks authority to release grand jury records for reasons of "extreme public interest" or any other reason not specifically detailed in federal court rules. District Court Judge Beryl Howell disagreed, ruling that the court had "inherent" power to disclose grand jury information for other reasons.

Kendall did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the Justice Department’s decision to appeal the order to make the records public.
