Judicial Watch: Federal Court Hearing on June 8 Ordered for Lawsuit Seeking DOJ Fusion GPS Records

Contact: Jill Farrell, Judicial Watch, 202-646-5188

WASHINGTON, June 7, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch announced that a federal court ordered a hearing for Friday, June 8, 2018, regarding communications of the Office of the Attorney General with Nellie Ohr, the wife of former Senior DOJ Official Bruce Ohr, who was critical to the Clinton/DNC dossier authored by Christopher Steele (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No.1:18-cv-00491)). The suit is before U.S. District Court Judge Reggie B. Walton.

The Justice Department is resisting Judicial Watch request to search Attorney General Sessions' office and otherwise is stonewalling searching for and releasing records.

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit on March 1, 2018, after the DOJ failed to respond to a December 12, 2017, FOIA request seeking:
