15 new FOIA court documents, plus case descriptions

by on February 18, 2014

We have added 6 documents from 1 FOIA case filed between February 9, 2014 and February 15, 2014. Note that there can be delays between the date a case is filed and when it shows up on PACER. If there are filings from this period that have yet to be posted on PACER, this FOIA Project list may not be complete.
