Tsarnaev friend’s lawyer wants court order lifted

A lawyer for one of the college friends of alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked a federal judge Tuesday to lift a court order that restricts what the attorney can say publicly in the friend’s own criminal case.

The attorney for Azamat Tazhayakov argued before US Magistrate Judge Marianne B. Bowler that there is no reason for the protective order, and that it unfairly allows for federal prosecutors to decide what materials are put into the public record.
