CEI v. EPA – No. 15-346

The EPA has stonewalled CEI's Freedom of Information Act requests for the emails of then-EPA administrator Lisa Jackson's "Richard Windsor" account. The EPA insists that they process the 120,000 records at a pace of 100 per month, concluding production in a century. Making matters worse, the EPA refuses to process other CEI requests until after that time, unless CEI puts its "Windsor" request on hold.
