We have added 6 decisions of a procedural or substantive nature filed between October 16, 2022 and October 22, 2022. These are associated with 6 FOIA cases pending in federal district court. Note that because there can be delays between the date a decision is made and when it shows up on PACER, this listing includes only decisions that appeared on PACER during this period.
