Truthout Files FOIA Lawsuit Against Department of Justice

Watchdog news collective Truthout is suing the Department of Justice over FOIA requests filed with last year with the FBI, who have yet to produce the records. Their requests center on data related to FBI monitoring of a Bay Area Occupy Wall Street group.

From Truthout:

Our requests sought a wide range of documents, including “emails, memos, audio/video, transcripts, reports, threat assessments” in which Occupy Wall Street was discussed by FBI agents and/or senior officials. Additionally, we asked for records regarding any correspondence the FBI might have had with local and state law enforcement officials.
