DOJ sued for failing to comply with FOIA over anti-Catholic memo

From Fox News:

The Justice Department and FBI are facing a lawsuit from a Catholic lobbying group for allegedly failing to comply with a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request about a memo that originated from an FBI field office that labeled Catholics as “violent extremists.”

CatholicVote, along with Judicial Watch, filed a lawsuit on Thursday that says the groups exhausted all their options to remedy their FOIA requests with the agencies, and that after initially corresponding with the groups, the DOJ and FBI had stopped communication with the groups since April 6.

The suit follows the leak of an internal memo that was produced by the FBI’s Richmond, Virginia, field office on Jan. 23, 2023. The memo identified ‘radical-traditionalist Catholic[s]’ as potential “racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists.”

According to the complaint, the groups were requesting text and email communications between DOJ and FBI officials that included terms like “Catholics, “Latin Mass,” “Radical-Traditionalist Catholics,” “Pope Francis” and “Rosary,” among others.
