The order, which states that the documents must be released by Dec. 3 or appealed, shows how the DOD and the submitter failed to understand what the judge wanted them to do. The government asserted exemption 4, the judge gave the agency specific questions for the agency to answer while submitting the documents for in camera review. However, the agency merely submitted the documents in redacted and unredacted form and submitted a declaration from the submitter. The government, however, failed to answer the court's specific questions. The absence of answers to its questions as well as claims that the harms were only probable and not specific led the court found that the exemption 4 claims had not been established by the government.
