By FindLaw Staff on June 22, 2009 4:21 PM

In a Freedom of Information Act action seeking documents pertaining to a government investigation of a plane crash, the District Court's order requiring the production of some of the documents sought is affirmed in part, where certain documents were not protected by the deliberative process privilege; but reversed in part, where the eyewitness testimony sought would infringe protected privacy interests.
