Partners Support EPIC FOIA Appeal

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), joined by OTG, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the ACLU, filed an amicus brief arguing that the Freedom of Information Act’s exemption for deliberative material (Exemption 5) cannot be used to withhold purely factual documents. The materials under dispute include test results, fact sheets, and data related to radiation exposure from Advanced Imaging Technology machines used by the Department of Homeland Security and TSA that were requested by EPIC.
