DECLARATION OF BARBARA GOLDEN 

I, Barbara Golden, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Ą 1746, hereby
declare that:
 ­ 
 1. I am a Special Agent of the United States Secret Service,
assigned to the Chicago Field Office of the Secret Service.

 2. I participated in the search of the business premises of
Steve Jackson Games on March 1, 1990, pursuant to a warrant
issued by United States Magistrate Stephen H. Capelle of the
Western District of Texas.
 ­ 
 3. The execution of the search warrant was extremely limited in
scope. After using a key, which had been provided by Loyd
Blankenship, we entered Steve Jackson Games early in the morning,
prior to the arrival of any employees.
 ­ 
 4. We seized two of the eighteen functioning computers. One of
the computers was Blankenship's work computer, located at his
desk. The other was the computer used to run the Illuminati BBS.
One additional disassembled and non-functioning computer located
next to Blankenship's desk was also seized. Only computers
clearly under Blankenship's control were seized.

5. In addition to the computers, we also seized a cardboard box
containing computer disks, papers and notes, a box containing a
memory board entitled "Rampage 286" and a manual, a box with
laplink software, and a Splatmaster gun with "Mentor" on the
barrel. These items were recovered from the working area of
Blankenship. A box labeled "BBS Backup files", a "WWIV" User's
Manual and a red box containing floppy disks were seized from the
area near the computer used to run the Illuminati BBS.
Additionally a plastic bag containing papers and notes was
recovered from Blankenship's desk along with a floppy disk
entitled Phoenix Setup". To the best of my knowledge, a paper
copy of the Cyberpunk book was not among the items included in
Item 17 nor among any of the other items seized.

13. At the time that the search warrant was executed, I did not
know that Steve Jackson Games held itself out as a publisher. I
believed that Steve Jackson Games was involved with the
manufacture of computer or video games.

14. The purpose of the search warrant was to obtain any
documents in the possession or control of Loyd Blankenship which
might be located at Steve Jackson Games and which might evidence
his involvement in interstate transportation of the stolen E911
document or in password cracking activity. At the time of the
search warrant application, I was unaware of the existence of the
book known as GURPS Cyberpunk or any other publication by Steve
Jackson Games.

15. At no time did I intercept any electronic communications
made by, addressed to or concerning any of the plaintiffs in this
case. Similarly, I did not read any stored electronic
communications made by, addressed to or concerning any of the
plaintiffs.

"I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true
and correct."
Executed on 7/31/91
