After EPIC Obtains FBI Victim Notification Procedures, Court Rules for Bureau

After EPIC obtained the FBI cyberattack victim notification procedures in Freedom of Information Act lawsuit EPIC v. FBI, a D.C. federal court has ruled that the agency may withhold remaining records explaining FBI's response to the Russian interference in the 2016 election. EPIC had argued that the FBI had failed to demonstrate that releasing records of the agency's response to cyberattacks would interfere with its investigation of the Russian interference. The "Victim Notification Procedures" obtained by EPIC led to Associated Press investigation which found that the FBI did not follow the Procedures and failed to notify U.S. officials that their email accounts were compromised. EPIC is currently pursuing related FOIA cases about Russian interference in the 2016 election, including EPIC v. IRS (Release of Trump Tax Returns) and EPIC v. DHS (election cybersecurity).
