The result of a lawsuit by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund demanding materials about secret U.S. government payments to
Miami journalists during Cuban Five trial
In June, in the federal district court of the District of Columbia, the PCJF filed a Freedom of Information Act Lawsuit against the U.S. State Department for its refusal to produce materials in its possession about secret payments by the U.S. government to Miami-based journalists. Those reporters were reporting on the case of the Cuban Five prior to the trial, during the trial and while the unsequestered jury was deliberating.
Now, as a result of the PCJF’s lawsuit, the State Department has been ordered to expeditiously produce responsive documents in its possession.
The first round of production is ordered to begin in October.
