Public Citizen v. Office of Management and Budget (EO 13771 Records)
In April 2017, Public Citizen submitted a Freedom of Information Act request seeking records from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) related to OMB’s implementation of Executive Order 13771 and guidance from the OMB related to that Executive Order. After months during which Public Citizen received no response from OMB, Public Citizen filed suit seeking disclosure of the requested records. The parties agreed on a production schedule requiring OMB to produce records on a rolling basis. After OMB produced responsive records, Public Citizen dismissed the case.
