Group backed off from 9/11 info search by high costs

First Amendmend Center Article

The American Way Foundation has sued for the right to obtain information, under the Freedom of Information Act, about the arrests that were made after 9/11. They won the suit but now the Justice Department is estimating a cost of $373,000 to do their research.

The Foundation feels they are being discouraged from going ahead with their search.
“Unfortunately it’s part of a pattern of the Justice Department trying to foreclose access to this kind of information,” Elliot Mincberg, the group’s legal director, said yesterday.

“If that’s what it takes to track down secrecy in our court system, things are worse than I thought,” said Lucy Dalglish, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. “They think if they put a really big price on it, maybe the group will back off.”
