Another Error in DOJ Compliance and Litigation Report
Anne L. Weismann, Chief Counsel for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, has brought to our attention another case in which the DOJ inaccurately reported the status of a FOIA lawsuit. The settlement of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington v. Securities and Exchange Commission (DC 1:2011cv01814) states:
In consideration for agreeing to settle this case, the SEC agrees to pay $22,000 to CREW for attorney’s fees.
However, page 5 of the DOJ’s list of FOIA cases decided in 2012 indicates that no fees or costs were stipulated.
We’re still interested in whether the DOJ’s listing accurately reflects the status of any cases in which you may have been involved, or if the listing fails to include your case. You can contact us or leave a comment below to let us know.
