U.S. District Court Orders Release of More Energy Documents

LCG, March 6, 2002--Yesterday Federal Judge Paul A. Friedman ordered several agencies to make public thousands of documents relevant to Vice President Dick Cheneys energy task force. The Departments of Agriculture, Energy, Transportation, Commerce, and Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the White House Office of Management and Budget all fall under this ruling and must comply expeditiously or prepare withheld materials for a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, a conservative legal watchdog organization.

This ruling follows last weeks order by U.S. District Court Judge Gladys Kessler, who directed the Energy Department to release task force materials.

White House spokeswoman Barbara Comstock stated The administration has never disputed the necessity of producing information required by law to be made public.

However, she added, The process of sorting through thousands of documents to determine which law requires federal agencies to disclose, and which Congress has protected from public disclosure, is often laborious and time-consuming.

The EPA alone is withholding 19,500 pages relating to the Vice Presidents task force. The Transportation and Commerce department have 6,000 and 9,000 pages respectively.
