Everytown Sues DOJ for Failing to Turn Over Communications with the NRA and NSSF

October 17, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Everytown for Gun Safety filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) complaint against the U.S. Department of Justice in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia for the DOJ’s failure to produce records of its employees’ communications with the National Rifle Association and National Shooting Sports Foundation that occurred after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018. The lawsuit, which Everytown filed with the law firm of Arnold & Porter Kay Scholer LLP, also seeks records regarding the abandonment of gun violence prevention initiatives launched during the Obama Administration. The records Everytown requested relate to the extent of the gun lobby’s influence on federal government decision-makers.
