Filed on 17-Mar-2010, Judicial Watch Inc. v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services stems from a Freedom of Information Act Request to which a federal agency failed to respond. The requested documents relate to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. A docket report is archived, as is the Plaintiff's Complaint. The responsive pleading is due on 21-Apr-2010.
On 21-Apr-2010, Defendant HHS filed a motion requesting an extension of time to respond to the Plaintiff's Complaint. The motion was unopposed. Both the motion and the text the of proposed order are archived. If the Judge accepts the proposed order, the Answer by HHS will be due on May 21, 2010.
On 14-Jul-2010, the parties agreed to Dismiss the case with prejudice.
The documents requested by Judicial Watch have now been released by HHS. Judicial Watch is processing the documents and will post them when appropriate.
