CIA Withheld Records About Interrogation Methods So FOIA Case Now Stayed to Sept 28

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 29 – A Freedom of Information Act request for records withheld about the Manchester Manual and enhanced interrogation methods gave rise to FOIA litigation.

     On June 29, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  After disclose a possible conflict that the two sides both quickly waived, Judge Furman asked about timing, noting that the records had been sought in connection with the 20th anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks.

  The plaintiff's lawyer said there was a June 30 soft deadline - and Judge Furman said, you will not be getting a decision by then. But perhaps soon.

Now on July 29, on a motion for a stay on consent, Judge Furman in an Order into the docket has granted the motion while stating, "The Court is skeptical of the Government's claim that it can present a substantial case on the merits. If the relevant 'decision' for purposes of the deliberative process privilege were the decision of what to include in the final draft of a document, it would mean that every draft document was covered by the privilege - which is decidedly not the law." The extension lasts only until September 28, to produce the Draft Intelligence Report.

  In another FOIA proceedings in SDNY also covered by Inner City Press, Judge Engelmayer wished the parties, including Raymond Bonner working on the documentary, luck in getting things "across the goal line." Is time running out?

The case is Bonner v. Central Intelligence Agency, et al., 19-cv-9762 (Furman)
