Rivera-Drew v. HHS

We represented an attorney/researcher focusing on corporate accountability who filed a FOIA request with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) seeking records filed by HCA, Inc. in compliance with reporting requirements under a Corporate Integrity Agreement. When more than a year had passed and HHS had produced only about 5% of the 72,000 pages of responsive records, we filed suit to compel the agency to comply with FOIA and produce the documents. On May 28, 2009, the defendant agreed to entry of a scheduling order to govern the production of the remaining documents.
