FOIA: Public Advocate of the United States v. U.S. Department of Justice

admin FOIA Law, Litigation, U. S. District Court, District of Columbia

On April 9, 2019, we filed suit on behalf of Public Advocate of the United States against the U.S. Department of Justice seeking to obtain certain records that the Department refused to disclose. Specifically, Public Advocate sought “copies of all records demonstrating compliance or noncompliance with the DOJ’s implementation of the Sessions USA Memo directive to appoint [religious liberty] ‘points of contact’ within each United States Attorney office. Additionally … a list or other records of such religious liberty ‘points of contact’ that have been designated in each U.S. attorney’s office, together with contact information for that person.”
