A three-judge panel has ordered the Justice Department's Enron Task Force to hand over notes from its interviews with former Chief Financial Officer Andy Fastow.

Attorneys for former CEO Jeff Skilling had sought the notes in order to prove that Fastow was coerced into his role as a key witness against Skilling. Skilling, who was CEO for six months before Enron's notorious collapse, is one year into a 24-year prison sentence at a federal prison in Minnesota.

Skilling is appealing his conviction on 19 criminal counts. Fastow, who struck a plea bargain with prosecutors, is serving a six-year sentence at a federal prison in Louisiana.
