A chain that owns daily and weekly newspapers across Eastern Massachusetts is objecting to the secrecy of court filings in the federal prosecution of the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.

GateHouse Media, which includes the Quincy Patriot Ledger, the Metrowest Daily News and the Waltham Daily News-Tribune, sent a letter Wednesday to U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole complaining that the omission of dozens of legal filings from the public docket is interfering with news coverage of the case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
