Judicial Watch Sues Departments of State, Defense and Homeland Security to Obtain Anti-Israel 'Boycott, Divestiture, and Sanctions' (BDS) Lobbying Records
Contact: Jill Farrell, Judicial Watch, 202-646-5188
 
WASHINGTON, Aug. 3, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of State, and the U.S. Department of Defense for all records of communications regarding anti-Israel group Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions' (BDS) efforts to lobby the Obama administration adopt policies to harm companies doing business with Israel (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Defense (No. 1:18-cv-01721)).
 
The suit was filed after all three agencies failed to respond to nearly identical April 23, 2018, FOIA requests seeking:
 
All emails to or from current or former officials in the [DOD, DHS, or State] Office of the Secretary containing the phrase "boycott divestment and sanctions."
 
All emails to or from current or former officials in the [DOD, DHS, or State] Office of the Secretary containing both the terms "BDS" and "Israel."
