CASE ENTRY

Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Department of Homeland Security

Six times, Judicial Watch submits FOIA requests for Secret Service records. Six times, Secret Service fails to respond within statutory deadline. Six times, Judicial Watch sues in court, and Secret Service immediately produces the requested records. D.C. Circuit (with a concurrence and over a dissent): Given these prolonged, unexplained delays, Judicial Watch may be entitled to an injunction compelling the agency to comply with FOIA in the future.
