We have added 4 decisions of a procedural or substantive nature filed between December 26, 2021 and January 1, 2022. These are associated with 4 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.
