Judicial Watch v Department of Defense (No. 1:14-cv-01027)

On June 17, 2014, Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the United States Department of Defense (DOD) to obtain records of communications relating to its May 2, 2011, FOIA request for bin Laden death photographs and videos (Judicial Watch v U.S. Department of Defense (No. 1:14-cv-01027)).

Judicial Watch filed its lawsuit in accordance with a June 7, 2013, FOIA request seeking the following:

All records of communications concerning, regarding, or relating to a FOIA request (Control No. 11-F-0931) dated May 2, 2011, filed by Judicial Watch with the DOD office of Freedom of Information (OFOI). The time frame for this request is May 2, 2011, to September 26, 2011.

On May 2, 2011, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request with the DOD seeking “all photographs and/or video recordings of Osama (Usama) bin Laden taken during and/or after the U.S. military operation in Pakistan on or about May 1, 2011.” An identical request had been filed with the CIA. When neither the DOD nor the CIA complied with the FOIA requests within the 20 business days required by law, Judicial Watch, in June, 2011, filed FOIA lawsuits against both agencies.
