I attended the oral argument in the ACCG-IAPN-PNG Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case against the State Department today. The Appellate judges were obviously well prepared. They gave both sides a hard time on various points in the briefs. Overall, though, I suspect the district court opinion will ultimately be reversed based on the conclusory nature of the State Department's declaration explaining why the documents at issue should be confidential.
Anyway, we should find out in the coming months.
