This FOIA litigation on behalf of the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) seeks information from the databases that track the activities of the United States Attorneys.
TRAC first brough suit against the DOJ on February 7, 2000, to challenge the Department's decision to withhold current database information that would allow the public to evaluate federal law enforcement activities by the FBI, INS, DEA and prosecutors within the Department of Justice.
On December 16, 2002, TRAC filed a second suit after the Department of Justice began withholding additional database information that identifies the general categories of investigations that are referred to the Department of Justice. The Department declared that it would begin to withhold this information shortly after the Senate Judiciary Committee referred to TRAC reports in questioning whether the Department of Justice was devoting more resources to investigating domestic terrorism. On November 27, 2002, Senators Patrick Leahy and Charles Grassley sent a letter to the Attorney General discussing issues raised the the Department's conduct.
