Once again the Justice Department refused to turn over Ed Peters’ immunity agreement. Here is the DOJ’s response. I received what appears to be a form letter like the one that DOJ sent last time, as discussed in this earlier post.

But this time DOJ added a note on the last page:

NOTE: We have received your letter dated Sept. 16, 2009. Is the immunity agreement you seek a public record?

Great. A clue. I take this to mean that DOJ is either trying to be helpful, or playing games. I’m a natural cynic, so it’s not much of a question to me. But I’ll take the bait anyway and request all public records.
