"Public corruption is prevalent in the United States... Public corruption also is a Texas tradition" 
Los Angeles, January 20 - the ongoing corruption scandal in El Paso, Texas, continues for the fourth year. In parallel, USA v Ketner et al (3:06-cr-01369) in the US District Court, Western District of Texas, continues, sealed, for the fourth year.
Media's efforts to unseal the case remain denied by US Judge Frank Moltalvo.
Texas Media claim that it is the largest public corruption case in the history of the United States.
In denying media's Motion to Intervene and justifying the ongoing sealing in acase, where a judge is judging corrupt judges, Judge Frank Montalvo in his May 28, 2008 Memorandum Opinion and Order states: 
- b. The Public's Common-Law Right of Access
- American courts recognize a general right to inspect and copy public records and
- documents, including judicial records and documents. "It is uncontested, however, that the
- right to inspect and copy judicial records is not absolute. Every court has supervisory power over

- vehicle for improper purposes.
- It is difficult to distill from the relatively few judicial decisions a
- comprehensive definition of what is referred to as the common-law
- right of access or to identify all the factors to be weighed in
- determining whether access is appropriate. The few cases that
- have recognized such a right do agree that the decision as to access
- is one best left to the sound discretion ofthe trial court, a discretion
- to be exercised in light of the relevant facts and circumstances of
- the particular case.

- 43 Id at 598-99; see also Belo Broadcasting Corp. v. Clark, 654 F.2d 423 (5th Cir. Unit A 1981)
- ("'Because no clear rules can be articulated as to when judicial records should be closed to the public,
- the decision to do so necessarily rests within the sound discretion of the courts, subject to appellate
In denying on October 14, 2008 media's second Motion to Intervene, Judge Montalvo provides the quote: 
- "[W]hile all deception requires secrecy, all secrecy is not meant to deceive."
