US State Dept Is Sued Under FOIA About Unalienable Rights Commission But Says Moot

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 17 – The U.S. State Department has been sued under the Freedom of Information Act for records about its "Commission on Unalienable Rights." But there are now concerns it is moot.

 On December 17 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John G. Koeltl held a proceeding. Inner City Press, frequent user of FOIA, covered it. 

 It was argued that the documents are needed in order for the public to participate in the Commission. But, Judge Koeltl said, the Commission is over.

He set a briefing schedule, on issues of mootness: "the parties should submit a letter by December 22 with a proposed schedule for supplemental briefing on the issue of mootness and a proposed date for oral argument."

The case is Robert F. Kennedy Center For Justice And Human Rights et al v. Pompeo et al., 20-cv-2002 (Koeltl)
