CREW Files for Release of OLC Memos

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed suit against the Department of Justice last week for not making opinions by the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) available to the public. The suit argues that the OLC opinions, which often include authoritative interpretations of the law, are required to be made public under the provision of the FOIA that requires the government to publish “final opinions” and “statements of policy which have been adopted by the agency.” See CREW's announcement here.
