C-123 Veterans' FOIA Complaints Filed in US District Court Against VA & USAF

Acting on our behalf, the Washington DC law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP today filed complaints for injunctive relief for violations of the Freedom of Information Act. Complaints were filed against both the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of the Air Force.

These actions are carefully considered and submitted only after months and years of efforts to gain the release of unclassified documentation, not protected by privacy concerns nor any other excuse. 

Focused on the exposure claims of C-123 veterans, we sought essential documentation to understand the Air Force 2012 C-123 report, and the stance taken by the VA prohibiting our veterans' exposure disability claims.

FOIA: Our rights abused by VA and USAF
It would be nice to immediately have the agencies provide the requested materials in sudden respect of our rights under the Freedom of Information Act. That's unlikely but perhaps some conversation might ensue.

In any case, we will soon have in hand official documentation vital to proving our case before the VA.
