This morning I filed a federal lawsuit in Sherman, Texas to force the FBI to release records about murdered Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich. My friend and client Brian Huddleston filed a Freedom of Information Act request on April 4, 2020, and as usual the FBI ignored it, prompting the lawsuit.
As my regular readers know, I filed my own FOIA case two years ago in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, but that case has not been very productive. Suffice it to say that the judge in Brooklyn has shown a very strong interest in protecting the interests of the FBI.
