Appeals Court Hearing on Friday, November 4 on Lawsuit against John Kerry Over Clinton Emails
by JUDICIAL WATCH
November 3, 2016
(Washington DC) - Judicial Watch today announced that a hearing will be held on Friday, November 4, 2016, regarding Judicial Watch's lawsuit challenging the failure of Secretary of State John Kerry to comply with the Federal Records Act (FRA) in seeking to recover the emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other high level State Department officials who used non-"state.gov" email accounts to conduct official business (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. John F. Kerry (No. 16-5015)).
Date: Friday, November 4, 2016
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: Courtroom 31
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
333 Constitution Ave NW
Washington, DC 20001
In May 2015 Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the State Department failed to take action following a letter to Kerry "notifying him of the unlawful removal of the Clinton emails and requesting that he initiate enforcement action pursuant to the FRA," including working through the Attorney General to recover the emails. Judicial Watch's lawsuit subsequently was consolidated with a later lawsuit by Cause of Action Institute. Both organizations now are appealing a January 2016 decision by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia dismissing the case.
