On November 7, 2019, the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) denied a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Appeal filed by Greentech Media (Appellant) from a final determination issued by the Department of Energy's Office of Public Information (OPI). On Appeal, the Appellant alleged that the OPI had improperly invoked Exemption 5 of the FOIA. After review, OHA determined that the OPI had redacted some non-deliberative material through improper use of Exemption 5. Accordingly, OHA granted the Appeal in part. OHA Case No. FIA-20-0002.
