Murphy and Forest Service Settle FOIA Lawsuit
Dennis Murphy and the United States Forest Service settled (pdf) their outstanding FOIA lawsuit with the agency agreeing to provide a response to Murphy's FOIA appeal and to pay Murphy $4500 in costs and fees. The Forest Service since responded to the FOIA appeal releasing over 75 pages of records in their entirety that were previously redacted in whole or in part by the agency. At the same time, the agency has redacted 261 pages in whole or in part, continuing to withhold information that could be released on guidelines set out by President Obama and Attorney General Holder. The full FOIA response is here (pdf).
