CASE ENTRY

American Civil Liberties Union v. National Security Agency

The ACLU seeks a series of documents about national security programs, but the feds decline to hand them over on the grounds that they include attorney-client and deliberative, pre-decisional communications. Fair enough, says the Second Circuit. While the gov’t can be forced to disclose if they adopted the information in those documents as their policy, the guvvies didn’t expressly do so here. So they can keep the docs to themselves.
