The Delaware Superior Court affirmed the decision to deny Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation access to papers that then-Senator Joseph Biden donated to the University of Delaware library.
The appeal involved two opinions of the state Attorney General that the papers were not subject to a FOIA demand.
The court noted that "[e]very lawyer licensed in Delaware is bound by a duty of candor" and that "statements made by the University General Counsel may be given proper weight."
The "Appellants have provided nothing other than unsupported speculation in opposition to University Counsel's representation." (Mike Frisch)
