This is from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel. We asked for these documents in May 2017, did not receive them in a timely manner and had to sue to get them.
In total, DOJ said that 1,743 pages were responsive to our request, i.e., all e-mails and memos written by and to Brett Kavanaugh during the time he worked in the White House (2001-06). Of those, 899 pages were withheld in full (we’re following up on this to ask why), and 844 pages were produced, albeit heavily redacted.
Of the pages produced, about two-thirds were from Kavanaugh’s time as associate counsel, and one-third were from his time as staff secretary.
The other productions are linked below:
First production (Aug. 3)
Second production (Aug. 17)
Third production (Aug. 31)
Fourth production (Sept. 14)
Fix the Court has ongoing FOIA litigation with a different division of DOJ, the Office of Legal Policy, over a FOIA we submitted in July 2018.
We expect files to be produced as part of that lawsuit as soon as Sept. 21.
