Case DescriptionThe Center for Media Justice and the ACLU submitted a FOIA request to the FBI for records concerning the agency's surveillance of blacks based on a purported shared ideology. The FBI divided the request into two separate requests. It disclosed 320 heavily redacted pages citing Exemption 5 (privileges), Exemption 6 (invasion of privacy), Exemption 7(C) (invasion of privacy concerning law enforcement records), and Exemption 7(E) (investigative methods and techniques). The Center for Media Justice and the ACLU filed an administrative appeal, challenging the agency's search and its exemption claims. After hearing nothing further from the agency, the Center for Media Justice and the ACLU filed suit.
