The New York Times Company et al v. United States Department of Justice

New York Times reporter Julia Preston sued the Department of Justice for records on retired Salvadoran Gen. Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova, who led the National Guard and Defense Ministry while death squads murdered tens of thousands of people. He has been denied relief from removal from the United States. Preston and the Times challenged the Justice Department’s refusal to release records from Vides Casanova’s immigration hearings, in a federal FOIA complaint.
