The U.S. Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, said Freedom of Information Act requesters have a right to sue a federal agency for documents even if the courts had previously refused to overturn the agency’s rejection of an identical request by another party. The court said that denying an additional claim would preclude a litigant from having “his own day in court.” (6/19/08)
