Judge Orders Cheney Document Release

A federal judge has ordered several government agencies to release documents related to Cheney's energy task force.

In an opinion released late on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman ordered seven government agencies including the Department of Energy, Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management to hand over pertinent documents by June 1. He was ruling on a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch and the National Resources Defense Council. The two groups had sued to force the various departments involved in the energy task force to release documents related to the task force and its deliberations. Friedman said the agencies had an obligation to release the data.
