So transparent that a judge had to force the Treasury department to turn documents over to Fox News - so what is to hide that this administration reneged on its transparency stance...

 

FOX Business Network has won a victory against the Treasury Department in its Freedom of Information Act request for details about the government's bailout plan.

 

Judge Richard J. Holwell of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York said in a decision Friday that the government is directed to comply with FOX Business's request under the FOIA "within 30 days and to produce a Vaughn index with 45 days."

 

That means Treasury must comply with FOX Business's request by Monday, March 23, and must produce a Vaughn index by Monday, April 6.

 

A Vaughn index details which documents have been withheld and why.

 

FOX Business sued Treasury on Dec. 18 over failure to provide information on the bailout funds or respond to FBN's expedited requests filed under the FOIA.
