Judge Slams Justice and State Departments for Inept Handling of FOIA Requests

December 10, 2018 / Charles S. Clark

In another of many stories from the 2016 presidential campaign that will not die, a district judge last week handed a victory to the conservative legal transparency group Judicial Watch by requiring two major federal agencies to perform a do-over on their search for missing Hillary Clinton emails. In a Dec. 6 ruling, Judge Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the Justice and State departments to meet with the plaintiffs’ attorneys to discuss next steps in determining whether Obama administration first-term Secretary of State Clinton’s use of a private email server was an “intentional attempt to evade” the Freedom of Information Act.
