FOIA Project Annotation: A federal magistrate judge in California has once again rejected the DEA's Vaughn index concerning confidential informant Gordon Todd Skinner, whose identity as an informant had already been publicly disclosed. The case involves ongoing eight-year litigation by William Pickard to force the agency to disclose information about Skinner's role in a drug operation that led to Pickard's conviction. The Ninth Circuit previously ruled that Skinner's identity had been revealed in court proceedings and could not be protected. Since that decision, the parties have continued to argue over the extent of disclosure. Relying on Wiener v. FBI, 943 F.2d 972 (9th Cir. 1991), the magistrate judge found the DEA continued to describe withheld records too broadly and required it to provide more detail. The magistrate judge noted the DEA described a "Report of Investigation" as containing "information provided by a source." But after reviewing the document, the magistrate judge pointed out that "the section actually describes information involving the moving of an LSD laboratory, money the DEA reportedly seized, and efforts by different individuals to exchange money from one currency to another. The government could have revealed this information in the Vaughn Index, without violating the privacy interests of any third parties or DEA agents." Telling the agency to supplement its index, the magistrate judge observed that "put simply, by using boilerplate language throughout the declaration�"both to describe the contents of the document and to describe what exemptions apply�"the government failed to sufficiently describe the information in the documents, and provide a 'particularized explanation' of how disclosure would damage the interest protected by the claimed exemption."

FOIA Project Annotation: A federal magistrate judge in California has tentatively found that identifying information about DEA informant Gordon Skinner should be disclosed to William Pickard because Skinner was publicly identified as a confidential informant at Pickard's trial. The magistrate judge's recommendation brings the decade-old case closer to resolution. The Ninth Circuit previously ruled that because Skinner was identified at Pickard's trial the agency could not refuse to confirm his identity. The government has continued to lose in regard to various aspects of the case in both the Ninth and Tenth Circuits. Finding that the government had provided no better explanation for why information about Skinner should be withheld, the magistrate judge noted that "because the government has failed to do anything to bolster the arguments Judge Breyer rejected at summary judgment, this Court's tentative ruling is to release documents in the three categories of materials [currently being considered by the court]: Skinner's name, information Skinner has voluntarily disclosed to the public, including information released in the federal court proceedings in Kansas, and Skinner's NADDIS number."

FOIA Project Annotation: Sometimes even the most impressive victories for plaintiffs in FOIA cases turn out at the end of the litigation to be considerably less than they originally appeared to be. Often one apparently insurmountable obstacle is overcome, only to be replaced by another impenetrable claim further down the road. Such is the case in a decade-old suit against the Justice Department brought by William Pickard, who was convicted of manufacturing LSD. Pickard's suit first came to national attention in 2011 when the Ninth Circuit ruled that the government could not issue a Glomar response neither confirming nor denying the existence of records for Gordon Skinner, a confidential source who had testified at Pickard's trial. The Ninth Circuit found that because Skinner had been publicly identified as a confidential source, his identity could not be protected by a Glomar response. The case continued to go through several district court decisions in Kansas and California. Magistrate Judge Nathaniel Cousins of the Northern District of California recommended that Judge Charles Breyer rule in favor of Pickard's request for access to Skinner's name, his DEA NADDIS informant number, and any information Skinner provided during his public testimony because the agency had not shown the information was protected by Exemption 7(D) (confidential sources). However, although Pickard appeared to be poised to get everything he could probably have hoped for, Breyer rejected Cousins' recommendation, finding instead that all the information"including Skinner's name"was protected under Exemption 7(D). Breyer first reviewed exactly what the Ninth Circuit had said in Pickard v. Dept of Justice, 653 F.3d 782 (9th Cir. 2011). He agreed that the Ninth Circuit had rejected the agency's use of a Glomar response, but explained that the Ninth Circuit's ruling relied on Wolf v. CIA, 473 F.3d 370 (D.C. Cir. 2007), for the proposition that "official acknowledgment relates only to the existence or nonexistence of records, and that the government was to either disclose any officially acknowledged records or establish that the contents are exempt and that exemptions have not been waived." He pointed out that the Ninth Circuit had also cited Benavides v. DEA, 968 F.2d 1243 (D.C. Cir. 1992), the first appellate decision to interpret the subsection (c) exclusions contained in the 1986 amendments, as recognizing that "Congress intended to permit the DEA to withhold documents under 7(C) and 7(D), even if the agency must, under subsection (c)(2) acknowledge their existence." Pickard argued that the cited language in the Ninth Circuit's decision was either dicta or the result of a drafting error. Finding Pickard's argument implausible, Breyer observed that the Ninth Circuit "explained that, having officially confirmed Skinner as an informant, the government was to produce a Vaughn index, 'raise whatever other exemptions may be appropriate, and let the district court determine whether the contents, as distinguished from the existence, of the officially confirmed records may be protected from disclosure under the DEA's claimed exemptions.' The government is therefore correct that the ruling in this case defeats the argument that official confirmation of Skinner as a confidential informant merits the disclosure of all the information Pickard seeks." Breyer next noted that under Davis v. Dept of Justice, 968 F.2d 1276 (D.C. Cir. 1992), the plaintiff bore the burden of showing that the exact information requested was already in the public domain. He indicated that Pickard had failed to make that showing and proceeded to examine the applicability of Exemption 7(D). The government argued that Exemption 7(D) could not be waived, while Pickard contended that the government's confirmation of Skinner as a confidential informant waived the exemption. Breyer agreed with the government, but indicated that because there was no relevant Ninth Circuit precedent on 7(D) he would rely instead on Irons v. FBI, 880 F.2d 1446 (1st Cir. 1989), the leading appellate decision on waiver of Exemption 7(D). The plaintiff in Irons argued that the FBI waived its ability to protect any information provided by a confidential source once that source had testified in public. Rejecting that argument, the First Circuit ruled that public testimony of a confidential source did not waive the FBI's ability to claim Exemption 7(D) for information provided by the confidential source. Breyer emphasized that Irons did not stand for Pickard's contention that Exemption 7(D) did not apply to the identity of the source or public information disclosed by the source's public testimony. He added that Davis provided further confirmation that plaintiffs like Pickard were required to do far more to defeat a legitimate government exemption. Indeed, the facts in Davis bore some similarity to those in Pickard's case. Davis involved an argument that audiotapes of testimony during the BRILAB trial should be disclosed because they were in the public domain. But the D.C. Circuit found that Davis, rather than the government, bore the burden of showing that information had been publicly disclosed. Breyer indicated that "Davis therefore shows the D.C. Circuit recognizing the application of the official acknowledgement doctrine in to Exemption 7(D)." Breyer expressed concerns that "Pickard's request, which would require the government to compile a subset of the in camera documents in a form that is presently unavailable to the public, is problematic under Dept of Justice v. Reporters Committee." Breyer observed that "because it does not know which portions of which of the documents in the in camera materials are 'information Skinner has publicly disclosed,' the Court cannot independently verify whether all such information is covered by Exemption 7(D). However, because the government represented to the Court at the motion hearing that all of the 'information Skinner has publicly disclosed' is covered by Exemption 7(D), the Court's in camera review of the broader set of responsive materials gives it no reason to doubt this characterization, and"though he contends that the government/Skinner has waived Exemption 7(D)"Pickard has not disputed that the relevant materials 'could reasonably be expected to disclose the identity of a confidential source' or constitute 'information furnished by a confidential source.'" The agency also claimed Skinner's NADDIS informant number was protected by Exemption 7(E) (investigative methods and techniques). Pickard argued that the technique was generally known to the public, while the government argued that "the DEA uses a particular method to assign NADDIS numbers and that the more NADDIS numbers get out, the more people will be able to discern that methodology." Noting that a number of courts had found NADDIS numbers protected, Breyer concluded that "disclosing Skinner's NADDIS number would reveal techniques and procedures that are not generally known to the public."
