United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Zacarias MOUSSAOUI, a/k/a Shaqil, a/k/a Abu Khalid al Sahrawi, Defendant-Appellant.

No. 20-6717

Decided: January 15, 2021

Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, DIAZ, Circuit Judge, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge. Zacarias Moussaoui, Appellant Pro Se. Joseph Attias, Assistant United States Attorney, Richard Daniel Cooke, Assistant United States Attorney, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellee.

Zacarias Moussaoui appeals the district court's order denying his motions to modify the Special Administrative Measures (SAM), see 28 C.F.R. § 501.2(a) (2020), and to terminate those measures. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. United States v. Moussaoui, No. 1:01-cr-00455-LMB-1 (E.D. Va. Apr. 23, 2020). We also deny Moussaoui's motions to vacate the SAM, to stay the appeal pending Moussaoui being given the opportunity to testify before the “9/11 Constituent Representative of the US Congress,” to allow for ex parte communication with this Court, and for appointment of a paralegal to assist in his fight for justice for the “9/11 Victim Family.” We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.



Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
