 FOIA Requests to Air Force Lost, Delayed and Ignored
Washington, D.C., March 18, 2005 - The National Security Archive today filed suit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia against the Department of the Air Force for a pattern and practice of mishandling scores of FOIA requests.
The suit alleges that the Air Force fails to acknowledge FOIA requests, loses FOIA requests, fails to process requests, tries to discourage the public from pursuing FOIA requests, fails to respond to inquiries about the status of the requests and lets requests languish while records are destroyed or transferred to other agencies.
David Dean, a partner at the law firm James and Hoffman, who is handling the suit noted, "The Air Force appears to do a far worse job than other military departments and its system is so decentralized that there seems to be no way for the public to push for improvement.
