FIA-13-0003 - In the Matter the National Security Archive

On February 4, 2013, the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) issued a decision denying an appeal (Appeal) from a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) determination issued by the Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence.  Among other grounds for its appeal, the Appellant appealed the OIR’s decision to withhold portions of the released documents pursuant to Exemption 6.  After IN informed OHA about the sensitive nature of the redacted information, OHA determined that there was a privacy interest in withholding that information as it contained the names of individuals who were involved with the production of a classified document.  Thus, OHA denied the Appeal.
