Court Tells FEC It Must Be Responsive
Posted at 9:21 a.m. on April 3, 2013
The D.C. Circuit Court has ruled that the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires agencies with 20 days to review responsive documents and tell requesters what they are producing, what they are withholding, and why. The lawsuit was filed by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington against the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The FEC argued it had only to notify the requester that the agency intends to respond by producing non-exempt documents and claiming exemptions. See court order and opinion.
