FIA-13-0065 - In the Matter of: The Oregonian

On October 24, 2013, The Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) denied an Appeal filed by the Oregonian under the FOIA of a final determination issued by the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA).  The Oregonian’s appeal sought a security video of a motor vehicle accident involving a federal employee at a BPA parking ramp.  OHA found that BPA’s withholding of the security video under FOIA Exemption 6 was proper, since the release of this video could reasonably be expected to invade the privacy of several individuals appearing in the video and since the release of the video would not shed any light upon the activities or operations of the government.  Accordingly, OHA denied the Appeal.
