Court employee leaked classified documents, FBI alleges

Los Angeles Times on August 15, 2012 released the following:

“A federal court employee in Los Angeles was charged with leaking confidential court files, the FBI said Tuesday.

Nune Gevorkyan, 35, was accused of accessing sealed court documents and giving the information to defendants before they were arrested, officials said. Gevorkyan and her husband, Oganes Koshkaryan, were arrested Tuesday. They are charged with conspiring to obstruct justice.

Officials allege that an individual “working in an undercover capacity approached Koshkaryan about getting leaked information from the court.

“Following this conversation, on two separate occasions, the undercover provided Koshkaryan with the names of individuals who were actual defendants in a criminal case filed under seal in federal court. On both occasions, Koshkaryan then delivered to the undercover confidential information that had been obtained from the sealed court records,” according to a statement by the FBI.

“Checks of electronic court records confirmed that that Gevorkyan, who was employed as a clerk in the criminal Intake area of the district court’s clerk’s office, had accessed the sealed court records pertaining to the named individuals shortly after the undercover had delivered the names to Koshkaryan,” the statement added.

Details on the undecover operative were not provided in the statement.”
