For those of your following my FOIA case, Judge Zobel today ordered the State Department to produce a Vaughn Index within thirty days. This was not a great victory—although the government refused to assent to my motion when I filed it, the government didn’t oppose it.

So if all goes according to plan, on August 16 I should have a list of the records the government has in its possession, and the basis (if there is one) for the government’s decision to withhold them.
