The Center for Reproductive Rights, represented by private counsel, filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on October 15, 2019. The litigation sought declaratory and injunctive relief to compel compliance with two Freedom of Information Act requests filed for documents relating to budget and staffing for the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights. The case was originally assigned to Judge Randolph D. Moss; it was reassigned to Judge Florence Y. Pan on October 1, 2021.
On December 31, 2020, the parties informed the court they had reached an agreement for HHS to review and produce documents. HHS agreed to review 500 pages of documents per month. The case is ongoing, and the parties are filing status reports to the court every two months. The most recent was filed on February 28, 2022.
