I think it's the opposite - there's so much in the affadavit that even if the judge goes to open it, the defense attorney will likely object to parts of it (and that's his/her job to do that). I think it is only ethical for the opposing attorney (the prosecution) to allow that process to take place. The defense should get to see the affadavit before we do, and the judge needs to rule on whether some parts need to be redacted (for example, names and addresses, just as one set of things, especially as regarding potential witnesses). Once the defense and the prosecution speak with the judge, and the judge has his/her questions answered, then it's likely it will be available to the public. But we shouldn't see it before the defendant's attorney has a chance to discuss it with the court.
