Advocates for Highway & Auto Safety v. FMCSA (FOIA lawsuit)

Public Citizen represented Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, which filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with FMCSA in October 2006 for information about activities to develop or implement a program to evaluate Mexico-domiciled motor carriers that would be permitted to operate beyond the Mexico-United States border zone. In a series of productions in 2008 and early 2009, the agency released records related to the program, thereby resolving the case.
