Vivek 2024 V. Department Of Justice Et Al

Summary: The legal action initiated by Vivek 2024, a campaign spearheaded by 2024 Republican Presidential Candidate Vivek Ramasamy, is directed towards the Department of Justice (DOJ). The basis of the lawsuit is the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and it contests the DOJ's lack of response to the campaign's FOIA request for records pertaining to the decision to indict former President Donald J. Trump on federal criminal charges. The request, lodged on June 12, 2023, also demanded information on any dialogues or instructions from non-government third parties, political parties, committees, and Biden for President. The DOJ acknowledged the request, assigning it a case number, but extended the response time due to "unusual circumstances." The request was then forwarded to the DOJ's Criminal Division, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Office of the Inspector General for processing. However, the FBI closed the portion of the request forwarded to them, deeming it as "overly broad" and lacking in sufficient detail. The lawsuit identifies two primary violations of FOIA: the DOJ's failure to adhere to statutory deadlines and the unlawful withholding of agency records. The campaign contends that all administrative remedies required by FOIA have been constructively exhausted. The plaintiff is seeking a court declaration that the DOJ violated FOIA by not making a timely determination on the FOIA request and not providing the requested records promptly. The plaintiff also requests the court to order the DOJ to conduct a reasonable search for all responsive records and to provide a determination on the FOIA request. The plaintiff seeks for the court to maintain jurisdiction over the action to ensure the DOJ produces all non-exempt responsive records and does not improperly withhold any non-exempt portions of responsive records. The plaintiff is also seeking reasonable attorneys' fees and other allowable costs. The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

United States of America v. Robert Hunter Biden

Summary: Hunter Biden is currently embroiled in a lawsuit, accused of purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018 while allegedly using illegal substances. Despite denying drug use on the necessary paperwork, if found guilty, he could face a maximum of 25 years in prison along with substantial fines. Biden's defense team contends that the charges are politically driven, asserting that Biden's temporary possession of an unloaded firearm did not constitute a public safety risk. They intend to contest the charges, leveraging an agreement with the prosecution, recent federal court decisions, and potential Second Amendment defenses. This case could potentially ignite wider discussions about Second Amendment rights, especially as the Supreme Court is poised to deliberate on a related issue concerning gun ownership for individuals subject to domestic violence restraining orders. Opinions are divided among political and legislative figures, with some speculating that advocates of the Second Amendment might oppose the law that prohibits gun ownership for drug users.
