Bloomberg Wins Appellate Victory in Suit for Bailout Details

U.S. Circuit Chief Judge Dennis Jacobs wrote that the FOIA "sets forth no basis for the exemption the Board asks us to read into it. If the Board believes such an exemption would better serve the national interest, it should ask Congress to amend the statute."
