Bulger attorneys seek US documents on immunity deals

Attorneys for James ­“Whitey” Bulger demanded Monday that the US Justice Depart­ment be forced to hand over any records it has detailing the connection between Bulger and federal law enforcement, a connection that Bulger says gave him immunity from prosecution for any crime he committed.

The defense also filed a letter listing potential government witnesses at Bulger’s trial, scheduled to start in June. Bulger, through his attorneys, has said he will take the stand in his own defense and testify that a former federal prosecutor, the now-deceased Jeremiah O’Sullivan, was the person who granted him immunity.
