EPIC FOIA Lawsuit Reveals Failure to Conduct Privacy Assessments for DEA Surveillance Programs

In response to an EPIC FOIA lawsuit, EPIC has learned that the Drug Enforcement Administration never completed privacy impact assessments for the agency's massive license plate reader program, a telecommunications records database, and other systems of public surveillance. Despite a federal judge instructing the agency to search for records in response to the FOIA lawsuit, the DEA failed to produce the privacy assessments required by law. The outcome of EPIC v. DEA raises questions about the privacy review of the agency systems funded by Congress. EPIC is currently litigating a similar lawsuit against the FBI.
