Update on DOJ FOIA Lawsuit
March 19, 2003
For background on this lawsuit, please see:
Scroll down a little over half way and you'll see this lawsuit:
Devvy Kidd v. Department of Justice
Back in September 2002, DOJ responded to my March 10, 2002 FOIA by responding very specifically they had no documents responsive to my FOIA. I filed the usual appeal and they stalled.
On Feb. 5, 2003, I filed a lawsuit against them in Federal District Court.
On March 17, 2003, lo and behold, a thick packet of information
arrived from DOJ in Washington, DC. Well, well. Apparently there are documents
responsive to my FOIA, but only after I filed suit, DOJ finally coughs
up some of them:
The filing fee for this lawsuit, as well as the ones against former IRS Commissioner Rossotti and former Treasury honcho, O'Neil were paid for by We the People Foundation headed up by Bob Schulz.
The only way we're going to get to the truth about what went on behind the scenes and find out why DOJ and the IRS reneged on their agreement to show up at the scheduled hearings brokered by Congressman Roscoe Bartlett, is to sue. I am prepared to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary. This government of the lawless has now proven once again that they are nothing but a pack of liars.
I don't mind doing the work for free on these, but each time WTP has to spend funds, they need for everyone to help replenish them. We seek the truth and we need your help to continue. You can donate on-line to Bob's Foundation at: http://www.givemeliberty
Pre-trial conference for this lawsuit is set for July 17, 2003.
On the McVeigh lawsuit, the government requested a 30-day extension, which I agreed to, so that one is still sitting.
There is no response as yet from the government on the lawsuits against Treasury and the IRS; they still have almost a month to file their answer to the complaint for each case.
