ACLU Files FOIA Lawsuit for OPR Report

By Suzanne Ito, ACLU at 1:59pm

Last month, we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking the release of the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR)'s report. This report examines possible ethics violations by the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) lawyers who authored the torture memos — namely John Yoo, Jay Bybee, and Steven Bradbury.

Attorney General Eric Holders told Congress in late November that the report would be released imminently. So where is it?

We hope this lawsuit will compel the DOJ to finally release this report.
