Judge Orders Energy Department to Release Cheney Records

Wednesday, 27 February 2002 12:00 AM

The ruling could undermine the Bush administration's effort to keep the names of industry executives and lobbyists who met with White House officials while it formulated its energy plan last year a secret.

U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler criticized the government for moving at "a glacial pace."

The General Accounting Office and conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch have filed separate lawsuits to force the White House to turn over the documents.

Beginning March 25, the Energy Department must turn over the documents to Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group. The handover of materials must be complete by April 10.

"I don't know that it's possible for certain to tell what the documents will reveal, but obviously the DOE stonewalled us for almost a year, and they presumably had a reason to do that," said Rob Perks, a spokesman for the group.
