Judicial Watch Scores Victory in Solyndra FOIA Lawsuit



I received the following email from Judicial Watch and thought I'd share it with you.
"Judicial Watch Scores Victory in Solyndra FOIA Lawsuit
Judicial Watch has been aggressively investigating the Obama administration's corrupt deal to send $531 million in federal loans to the green energy boondoggle Solyndra, which is now bankrupt. In fact, we are in court right now fighting the Obama administration for the release of documents.
And last Friday we earned a court victory when a federal judge refused to allow the Obama Energy Department to wriggle off the hook. According to Politico:

'A federal judge has rejected a bid by the Obama administration to reject part of a lawsuit seeking documents about more than $500 million in federal loans to the failed Solyndra solar panel firm.
In an order issued Friday (August 31), U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras declined to remove the Department of Energy as a defendant in the case brought by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
The ruling (posted here) turned largely on technicalities relating to the steps one must take before filing a federal Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.'"
