Case Summary

On April 12, 2017, the ACLUs of Oregon, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, and Wyoming filed this suit under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). This was one of over a dozen such suits; each aimed to shed light on how U.S. Customs and Border Protection implemented President Trump's January 27, 2017 and March 6, 2017 Executive Orders (EO) that banned admission to the U.S. of nationals of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Specifically, the plaintiffs sought information "concerning CBP’…

On April 12, 2017, the ACLUs of Oregon, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, and Wyoming filed this suit under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). This was one of over a dozen such suits; each aimed to shed light on how U.S. Customs and Border Protection implemented President Trump's January 27, 2017 and March 6, 2017 Executive Orders (EO) that banned admission to the U.S. of nationals of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Specifically, the plaintiffs sought information "concerning CBP’s local implementation of President Trump’s January 27, 2017 Executive Order . . . as well as any other judicial order or executive directive issued regarding Executive Order No. 1, including President Trump’s March 6, 2017 Executive Order." The request concerned implementation at international airports within the purview of CBP's Portland Field Office, including Portland International Airport, Denver International Airport, Ted Stevens International Airport, Boise International Airport, and Casper/Natrona County International Airport. The request also concerned the number of individuals who were detained or subjected to secondary screening, extended questioning, enforcement examination, or consideration for a waiver at the aforementioned airports pursuant to the EO.

In the complaint, the plaintiffs argued that the requested records "would facilitate the public’s understanding of how the defendants implemented and enforced the Executive Orders" and that "[s]uch information is critical to the public’s ability to hold the government accountable."

The case was assigned to Judge Marco A. Hernandez.

On May 8, 2017, the government filed a motion to treat all of these FOIA cases as "multidistrict litigation" effectively consolidating them before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. For the transfer motion see this case. The ACLU filed their opposition to the motion to transfer on May 30, arguing that "[g]ranting consolidation and transfer would promote forum-shopping and delay, not justice." On Aug. 3, 2017, the U.S. District Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation denied the government's consolidation motion. In its order, the Panel found that although the thirteen FOIA cases share "a limited number of factual issues," and these issues "appear relatively straightforward and unlikely to entail extensive pretrial proceedings."

The court approved multiple schedule extensions for discovery. The parties continued with discovery and court telephone conferences through January 11, 2019, at which point an order for a joint status report was stayed due to a “lapse in appropriations to the Department of Justice” until February 25. On February 25, 2019, the parties jointly stipulated to dismiss with prejudice the case without award from the court. The dismissal was approved on February 26, 2019 and this case is closed. For the documents released by the government in all the ACLU cases see this case.
