This week’s FOIA round-up: Judge rules that Trump’s transition team emails are not subject to release under FOIA, and ICE’s internal documents show tactics, arrest quotas
In this week’s FOIA round-up, a federal judge ruled that Trump transition team emails are not subject to release, documents reveal years of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid tactics, and a recently released report showed federal agents feared riots by migrants who were being held in overcrowded and unsanitary cells. Meanwhile, in Montana, the state supreme court ruled that a university player’s privacy rights as a student outweigh the public’s right to know.
And belated happy birthday to FOIA, signed 53 years ago this week by President Lyndon Johnson in 1966.
