"Chemicals: Enviros File FOIA Suits For Pesticide Docs"

July 27, 2019

"Environmentalists went to court today in hopes of squeezing myriad pesticides-related documents out from several allegedly unresponsive federal agencies.

In a flurry of four Freedom of Information Act lawsuits, the Center for Biological Diversity seeks to compel disclosures from EPA, the Interior Department, the Department of Agriculture, NOAA Fisheries and others.

All told, the lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, revolve around 20 different FOIA requests for which meaningful responses have not yet been forthcoming."
