Case DescriptionThe Associated Press, USA Today, and journalist Jason Leopold all submitted FOIA requests to the FBI for records concerning the FBI's publicly-acknowledged purchase of a device that allowed it to break into iPhones in relation to its investigation of the San Bernandino shooting. All three requests were denied by the FBI under Exemption 7(A) (ongoing investigation or proceeding). The requesters all appealed the agency's decision. All of their appeals were denied by the agency. AP, Gannett, and Vice News then filed suit.
