The New York Times has gone to court to try to get copies of documents created by fired FBI director James Comey after his conversations with President Donald Trump.

The Times sued Friday in Manhattan federal court, saying the government has failed to respond properly to its Freedom of Information Act request for the materials.

A spokesman for government lawyers declined to comment.

The Times says it made its FOIA request last month. It's seeking all memos, emails or other documents in which Comey discussed or memorialized conversations with Trump.

The newspaper says the FBI acknowledged receiving the request and denied expedited processing. It says the FBI then failed to respond to the request within 20 business days as required under FOIA.
