Case DescriptionCNN submitted a FOIA request to the FBI for records concerning notes taken by former FBI Director James Comey of his conversations with President Trump. CNN requested expedited processing and a fee waiver. The FBI granted CNN's request for a fee waiver, but denied its request for expedited processing. CNN appealed the denial of expedited processing to the Office of Information Policy, which reversed the FBI's denial. The FBI told CNN it was searching for the memos, but after hearing nothing further from the agency, CNN filed suit.

Opinion/Order [19]
FOIA Project Annotation: Judge James Boasberg has ruled that a FOIA request filed by Freedom Watch to the Criminal Division at the Department of Justice asking for "any and all documents and records as defined. . .which constitute, refer, or relate in any way to any memoranda prepared, written and/or issued by former FBI Director James Comey concerning Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, and President Donald Trump" is too vague to search and, since Freedom Watch did not file an administrative appeal, should be dismissed for failure to exhaust administrative remedies. Boasberg emphasized that exhaustion was "not merely [a formality] to be routinely ignored, some unseemly morass of bureaucratic red tape," but that "rather 'exhaustion has long been required in FOIA cases' as a core component of 'orderly procedure and good administration.'" He noted that "in this case, DOJ's regulations require that a requester 'describe the records sought in sufficient detail to enable Department personnel to locate them with a reasonable amount of effort.'" He observed that "as the D.C. Circuit recently held, such upfront procedures are permissible as long as they are 'reasonable.' They clearly are in this case." He pointed out that "here, Justice concluded that the language 'relate in any way to' certain Comey memos was too vague. Courts in this district have agreed with such an appraisal, including in cases involving the same Plaintiff." Dismissing the case, he indicated that "of course, Justice gave Freedom Watch the opportunity to narrow or rephrase its request, but Plaintiff never accepted the invitation."
