by FOIA Project Staff on February 9th, 2023

We have added 7 decisions of a procedural or substantive nature filed between January 29, 2023 and February 4, 2023. These are associated with 7 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.
