Judge Orders Release of Energy Task Force Data
U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman ordered federal agencies to release documents pertaining to their work on Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force, The Washington Post reported. The Bush administration has claimed that its employees' work for the task force, which held secret meetings with energy company representatives and crafted national energy policy, is protected by confidentiality privileges. Friedman rejected the White House's argument and ordered the documents be made public by June 1.
