"Sierra Club Sues EPA Over FOIA Request On FOIA Requests"

"The Environmental Protection Agency has seen an uptick in requests for emails, memos, calendars, and other public records related to work by top officials aiming to strip President Obama's environmental legacy.

Amid the deluge, one of the many environmental groups opposed to that regulatory rollback has accused the EPA of ignoring a request for information.

Late Thursday, the Sierra Club sued the EPA for not responding quickly enough to a request filed in October under the Freedom of Information Act.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California near the organization’s Oakland, Calif., headquarters, accused the agency of “failing to produce requested agency records” regarding changes to the agency’s FOIA policies made under EPA chief Scott Pruitt."
