Tigue v. Department of Justice (2003)

Note REVIEW PENDING
 
IssueThis action was brought by a lawyer and his law firm seeking access under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U. S. C. § 552( b)) to a memorandum prepared by an assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York and sent to a public commission. The Neiman Memorandum outlined the Southern District’s opinions and recommendations as to how the Internal Revenue Service should conduct criminal tax investigations. The Memorandum was written for, and forwarded to, the Criminal Investigation Division Review Task Force, which was established by the IRS to gather information and make suggestions on how to reform its Criminal Investigations Department. The district court ruled against such disclosure under the FOIA.
