Importantly, Freedom Watch was forced to sue, as set forth in the complaint after the Defense Intelligence Agency and its Department of Defense stonewalled for 8 years the public interest group’s Freedom of Information Act request. When the agency finally responded, and Freedom Watch administratively appealed, defendants again failed to even give a timeline for producing all records, claiming dishonestly that there are literally thousands of other requests to be processed before Freedom Watch’s administrative appeal could be satisfied. Incredibly, of the few documents — only about 3 inches worth — that were provided, about 98 percent were in Russian.
Klayman had this to say upon filing suit:
“It is an outrage that our so-called government would continue to deny vital information about what the world knows is true: the existence of UFOs on our planet. I refer the public to the book and the Hollywood documentary titled Unacknowledged, written and produced by renowned UFO expert Dr. Steven Greer, who I have had on my radio show, Special Prosecutor with Larry Klayman.”
Link to the lawsuit: https://www.freedomwatchusa.org/pdf/190722-FIled%20UFO%20FOIA.pdf
On December 22, 2011, Plaintiff sent a FOIA request to Defendant DoD seeking the production of agency records relating to extraterrestrial visits, UFO encounters, Area 51, the Roswell incident and extraterrestrial life information regarding the United Nations, Great Britain and the United States.
Defendant DoD was required to determine whether to comply with Plaintiff’s FOIA request within twenty (20) days, excepting Saturdays, Sundays and legal public holidays, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(6)(A). Pursuant to this same provision, Defendant DoD also was required to notify Plaintiff immediately of this determination, the reasons therefore, and the right to appeal any adverse determination to the head of the agency. Plaintiff finally received Defendant DoD’s response on March 26, 2019, almost eight (8) years after Plaintiff’s original FOIA request, See Exhibit 1, with a so-called production of documents of about three (3) inches. The great majority of the de minimus production of records was in Russian and was not responsive to the original request, filed about 8 years earlier.
Reason For Cause
Defendant DoD is unlawfully withholding records requested by Plaintiff’s FOIA request pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 552 as set forth herein.
Plaintiff is being irreparably harmed by reason of Defendant’s unlawful withholding of the requested records and Plaintiff will continue to be irreparably harmed unless Defendants are compelled to conform to its conduct to the requirements of the law
