The Federal Emergency Management Agency has told a court in Florida there is little public interest in how it spend $5.5 billion in hurricane relief funds, despite fraud indictments and reports that some of the inspectors authorizing payments had criminal records. FEMA lawyers made the claim in court papers filed in a FOIA suit brought by the The Fort Myers News Press and other Gannett papers in Florida. (8/12/05)
