Miccosukee Tribe Loses FOIA Request on Summary Judgment

Order here.

Although the FOIA favors the disclosure of government records for the good of the public, the DOJ has met its burden to show the OPR, OTJ, and EOUSA’s refusals to confirm or
deny the existence of the records the Tribe is seeking are justified under Exemptions 6 and 7(C).
