A #FOIA lawsuit by a #Georgetown Law adjunct prof could compel the Office of Personnel Management to reveal how many people have been denied federal employment because they have not registered with Selective Service.
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg sided in part with Leah M. Nicholls, an adjunct and staff attorney with Georgetown Law's Institute for Public Representation. In her original FOIA request, and subsequent lawsuit, Nicholls sought OPM's records on the numbers and categories of men who were either fired or denied employment because they failed to meet the draft registration requirement.
Could prove interesting, these numbers. The personnel folks, though, replied that they didn't have any relevant records. Nicholls sued.
Judge Boasberg rejected OPM's request to dismiss the lawsuit, and ordered the federal agency to conduct another search.
