Electronic Privacy Information Center v. United States Department of Justice

Plaintiff's Reply in Support of Their Renewed Cross-Motion for In Camera Review

EPIC, in this joint brief with the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Security Archive, asked a federal court to order the Department of Justice to produce legal opinions that were prepared to justify the President’s domestic surveillance program. The brief renews EPIC’s request that a federal judge review the documents held by the agency and determine whether they should be kept from the public. In December 2005, immediately after press reports uncovered the President’s surveillance program, EPIC requested the legal opinions that were prepared to justify the program. The government refused to produce many key documents, and EPIC sued under the Freedom of Information Act.
