We have added 11 decisions of a procedural or substantive nature filed between May 20, 2018 and May 26, 2018. These are associated with 10 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.
