US Army Is Sued For Delay in Releasing Names of Afghans Eligible for US Visas in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 11 – The U.S. Department of Defense has been sued under the Freedom of Information Act to provide information to help Afghans eligible for US visa to get them, before the US pulls out of the country on September 10.    

     On July 9, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

 The government's lawyer wanted further delay, but the plaintiff noted the time pressure and Judge Hellerstein to his credit agreed. He said the documents should be provided by August 13.  

 Then the plaintiff spoke about another U.S. agency, holding them to the same deadline. The government lawyer immediately said the other agency is not part of the case. 

But what sense would it make, Judge Hellerstein asked, to have two separate cases?

He set a deadline for a motion to bring in the agency, and told the government letter to get them ready to produce documents.

The case is International Refugee Assistance Project, Inc. v. Defense Contract Management Agency, et al., 20-cv-306 (Hellerstein)
