Federal judges to hear arguments about CIA JFK files on November 6

Washington DC courthouse where federal judges will hear oral arguments about the CIA’s JFK records.

Oral arguments in my long-running lawsuit for certain CIA records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy will be heard in federal court in Washington on Friday, November 6.

At issue: whether the records forced into the public record by Morley v. CIA over CIA objections have had “public benefit.”

My attorney Jim Lesar has argued in his latest brief that media coverage of the disclosures in the New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Fox News, CBS News Dallas, Christian Science Monitor and other news outlets demonstrates the benefit.

Justice Department attorneys, arguing on behalf of the CIA, have contended that the documents released under court order in 2004 and 2008 have previously been released and have not contributed materially to public understanding of JFK’s assassination.
