Electronic Frontier Foundation Sues the U.S. DOJ for FOIA Information

Sunday, October 29th, 2006

On October 17 the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) sued the Department of Justice (DOJ) demanding records related to the FBI’s Investigative Data Warehouse (IDW) be released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The IDW will basically allow more data mining activities, linking personal information with specific activities to spawn investigations, than ever before.
