US Freedom of Information Act

It is not often that I welcome news from the Pentagon but the release of documents concerning the combatant status review tribunal procedures for prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay shows a robustness of the US Freedom of Information Act which I am not sure would be equalled by our own. The handbook that the US defence department uses are also published on the department’s website.

For those interested in the operation of our Act, incidentally, Issue 2 of Decaffs’s “Information Rights Journal” is out now. There are some interesting decisions of the Commissioner and the tribunal.

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
