FBI stalls on response to lawsuit over targeting Catholics
June 07, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: The FBI has asked for, and received, a delay in responding to a Freedom of Information lawsuit seeking information about the bureau’s investigation of Catholic groups.
In March, after the leak of a memo suggesting FBI infiltration of traditionalist Catholic groups, CatholicVote filed a freedom-of-information request for files pertinent to that issue. When the FBI failed to answer that request within 30 days, as required by law, CatholicVote filed suit to compel disclosure. Three months later, the FBI is still not ready to release the information, or to explain the delay.
The court set a new deadline of July 7 for the FBI to answer the request.
