Appeals Court sides with Vice-President on Energy Meetings
The Washington Post (subscription required) is reporting that the District of Columbia Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the Vice-President in a lawsuit filed by the Sierra Club and Judicial Watch to reveal details of the energy policy task force which he headed. The Court said that the plaintiffs failed to prove that the government had a duty to turn over notes and other documents developed at the meetings. The case has been sent back to District Judge Emmet Sullivan with orders to dismiss the case.
