Politico has this on the D.C. Court of Appeals decision concerning a case brought for records on Immigration Judges. The agency had made a blanket exemption on the names of Immigration Judges accused of misconduct and had redacted parts of responsive records because those parts of the records were considered not to be responsive to the request. Briefly, the Court found that while the names of the judges may properly be withheld in some cases, there is no across the board blanket exemption allowing for the redaction of the names. In other words, the agency will have to go through the privacy interest/public interest balancing test and if in litigation, will have to document its findings. Further, the court said that records found to be responsive needed to be processed under the FOIA, that certain parts of the records believed to be outside the scope of the response could not be redacted for that reason. In other words, they either need to be released or have one of the nine FOIA exemptions applied to them.
