"Greenberg v. FBI" FOIA lawsuit settled

Press Release
June 16, 2010

I am pleased to announce that both sides in Greenberg v. FBI have signed an agreement ending the FOIA lawsuit initiated in 2008.

The FBI file on Director L. Patrick Gray III was determined to be 7,588 pages, of which 6,510 pages were released in full or in part.

The responsive search for FBI records on Director Clarence M. Kelley produced 9,584 pages, of which 8,859 pages were released in full or in part.

The attorneys Mark S. Zaid and Bradley P. Moss handled the case for the plaintiff.

These files were declassified for the first time and released in an electronic form on CD-ROM. The government paid attorney fees. Documents from the Gray and Kelley files are being used in my forthcoming book, The Dangers of Dissent: The FBI and Civil Liberties since 1965 (Lexington Books)
