WASHINGTON (AP) November 2, 2012 — A federal judge in Washington has ordered the release of some court documents sealed in the 1970s as part of the court case against seven men involved in the Watergate burglary.

U.S. District Chief Judge Royce Lamberth said in a two-page order Friday that some materials being sought by a Texas history professor should be released. He gave the National Archives and Records Administration a month two review and release the materials.

Luke Nichter of Texas A&M University-Central Texas in Killeen, Texas, wrote the judge in 2009 to ask that potentially hundreds of pages of documents be unsealed.

Attorneys for the U.S. government said in court documents earlier this year that they would not oppose the release of some of the documents.
