Lawsuit: CREW v. Department of Education: Regarding For-Profit Education: 10/7/10

On October 7, 2010, CREW filed a complaint against the U.S. Department of Education challenging its failure to process CREW's July 23, 2010 Freedom of Information Act request for records related to communications concerning or with specified individuals and entities concerning the for-profit education industry.CREW made this request in the wake of press reports that a number of individuals were attempting to influence Education's regulation of the for-profit industry to further these individuals' own financial interests. Although Education claims to be processing CREW's request, it has yet to release to CREW a single responsive document.
