Background to Cheney Supreme Court Case


The U.S. Supreme Court on June 24 directed the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to rule on Vice President Richard Cheney’s claim that he cannot be subjected to the discovery process in a suit filed by the Sierra Club and Judicial Watch regarding the Vice President’s Energy Task Force. The Court declined to address Cheney’s argument that his office is categorically exempt from discovery. SAA was one of nine organizations that filed an amicus curiae brief in the matter and that issued a statement following the Court’s decision.
