A release from ICE that revealed a heretofore secret policy position on its work program took SIX YEARS of FOIA litigation to obtain. So much for the 20 days in the statute.  

In an effort to speed along litigation, attorney Andrew Free is trying out a Motion on the Pleadings. Here's what the litigation looks like to date:

Doc 7 - PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR JUDGMENT ON THE PLEADINGS 5/21/2020 

Doc 7-1 - PLAINTIFF’S MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES IN SUPPORT OF JUDGMENT ON THE PLEADINGS 5/21/2020

Doc 12 - DEFENDANT’S OPPOSITION TO PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR JUDGMENT ON THE PLEADINGS 6/18/2020 

Doc 13 - PLAINTIFF’S REPLY IN SUPPORT OF JUDGMENT ON THE PLEADINGS 6/23/2020
