Zabriskie Comments on High-Stakes FOIA Case Before High Court

18 April 2019 CPJ News
Partner John Zabriskie was quoted in a CPJ Blog post, “Supreme Court could limit FOIA, curtail investigative reporting,” about a pending Supreme Court case that could limit the amount of information that is subject to disclosure under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Zabriskie said FMI, an industry group representing over 40,000 retail food stores that is seeking to broaden the definition of what is considered “confidential” under the act, has a strong case. Although the case appears to “pit journalistic interests against a company’s commercial proprietary interests,” he said, “businesses are genuinely motivated by not having their competitively valued information disclosed.”
