CREW V. Office of Administration: Regarding Lost White House Emails

On May 23, 2007, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a lawsuit against the Office of Administration (OA), a component of the Executive Office of the President (EOP), in the District Court of the District of Columbia. The complaint requested a preliminary injunction to compel the OA to respond to a CREW Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The lawsuit is based on a FOIA request regarding over five million lost White House emails generated between March 2003 and October 2005. On April 27, 2007 the OA agreed to expedite CREW's FOIA request, but then failed to produce the documents, therefore prompting the lawsuit.
