The last opinion signed by Brett Kavanaugh before his nomination to the Supreme Court dealt a blow to a key provision of the Freedom of Information Action: compensation for successful litigant.
On July 9, Kavanaugh joined a 2-1 majority decision inMorley v. CIAthat held that the government did not have to pay my court costs because the CIA had acted reasonably and there was no benefit to the information obtained.
In a powerful dissent, Judge Karen Henderson rebuked Kavanaugh and Judge Gregory Katsas for ignoring precedent and inventing mandate.
“Although I support Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court, I am greatly dismayed that he played this role denying Jeff Morley’s suit. The real culprit, as we all must admit, is the CIA itself which has been relentless in their perpetration of the coverup for over half a century.
