Letter to DOJ Concerning CDC Compliance with Records Preservation Law and Lawsuit on FOIA Request Violations

American Oversight letter to Department of Justice counsel representing the Centers for Disease Control in connection with a lawsuit filed May 15, 2020, against the CDC to compel compliance with Freedom of Information Act requests. The letter requests CDC to take prompt action to ensure that records that may be responsive to American Oversight’s FOIA requests are preserved, in light of reports that CDC Director Robert Redfield instructed staff to delete a politically sensitive email.
