Case DescriptionJoseph Guarascio, a federal prisoner, submitted FOIA requests to the Department of Justice and the FBI for records concerning evidence used in his case. The agencies acknowledged Guarascio's requests, but denied them on the basis that his plea agreement prohibited him from making FOIA requests about his conviction.

His appeals were consolidated by the Office of Information Policy, which upheld the agencies' original decision. Guarascio then filed suit.
