PlaintiffPUBLIC EMPLOYEES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
Case DescriptionPublic Employees for Environmental Responsibility submitted two FOIA requests to the EPA for records. The first FOIA requested asked for background materials related to three documents. The second FOIA request asked records concerning the agency's review of Navy remediation efforts for its buildings. PEER also asked for a fee waiver. The agency acknowledged receipt of the requests and granted PEER's requests for a fee waiver. The agency told PEER its requests were too broad to be responded to within the statutory time limits. After hearing nothing further from the agency concerning either request, PEER filed suit.
