Court: U.S. Needn't Release Information About 9/11 Detainees

Tuesday, 17 June 2003 12:00 AM

A coalition of self-described "public interest" groups, supported by the media, had filed a Freedom of Information Act suit against the government "seeking release of information concerning persons detained in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, including: their names, their attorneys, dates of arrest and release, locations of arrest and detention and reasons for detention."

A federal judge ruled partly for the coalition by saying the government must release the names and lawyers of detainees. However, the appeals panel's majority ruled none of the information had to be released. It cited law-enforcement exemptions in FOIA. Copyright 2003 by United Press International.
