POGO Joins Comments in Support of Public Access to Consumer Complaints Database
POGO joined an amicus brief submitted by Public Citizen to the D.C. Circuit in CREW v. Federal Election Commission, an important Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case on exhaustion of administrative remedies. CREW seeks to overturn the lower court’s interpretation of FOIA, which makes it much harder for a requester to challenge agency delay under FOIA. If adopted by the D.C. Circuit, it could have detrimental consequences for all of our work and close the courthouse doors to countless FOIA requesters.
