Fourth Circuit Accepts Required Records Doctrine Exception to Fifth Amendment (12/13/13)

In United States v. Under Seal, 737 F.3d 330 (4th Cir. 12/13/13), here, the Fourth Circuit steps in line with the other Circuit Courts of Appeals on this issue.  (See the links below.)  It is a formal published opinion, but I am not sure that it breaks any new ground.  Barring some future split in the Circuits, I doubt that the Supreme Court will speak on the issue.  All that I could say about the issue has been said before.
