          AMENDED [1] MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER

         THIS MATTER comes before the Court on: (i) the Restricted Motion to Obtain Physical and Mental Health Records, filed March 27, 2018 (Doc. 1985)(“Health Records Motion”); and (ii) the Motion in Opposition to Disclosure of the Defendant's Redacted Mental and Physical Health Records to Third Party Co-Defendants, filed April 25, 2018 (Doc. 2161)(“Motion in Opposition”). The primary issue is whether several cooperating witnesses' health records, which the New Mexico Corrections Department (“NMCD”) maintains, are in Plaintiff United States of America's “possession, custody, or control.” Fed. R. Crim. P. 16(a)(1)(E). The Court concludes that federal regulations restricting the NMCD's ability to share those health records with the United States mean that the United States does not possess those records notwithstanding the NMCD's close cooperation with the United States in this case. Consequently, the Court denies the Health Records Motion and grants the Motion in Opposition.
