/, SEC, Suits/E&E Legal Files Suit Against the SEC to Compel Production of FOIA’d Documents

On February 12, 2015, the Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) along with the Free Market Environmental Law Clinic filed suit against the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) under the Freedom of Information Act.  The suit is aimed at compelling the SEC to produce documents under a FOIA request filed on December 29, 2014 that sought certain records related to SEC’s interactions with various investor-activist groups.  The SEC acknowledged receipt of the original FOIA request but has subsequently missed the January 29, 2015 for production, and despite a reminder by the plaintiff on the day of the deadline, the agency has yet to comply.
