by on March 27, 2014

We have added 11 decisions of a procedural or substantive nature filed between March 16, 2014 and March 22, 2014. These are associated with 11 FOIA cases pending in federal district court. Note that because there can be delays between the date a decision is made and when it shows up on PACER, this listing includes only decisions that appeared on PACER during this period.
