DOJ & Sikorsky update. On January 23, 2018, the U.S. District Court in San Francisco denied, in principal part, a motion for summary judgment filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) & Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) in the four-year-long Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation concerning Sikorsky’s small business subcontracting plan.   The Court ruled that the case would go to trial as to whether information being withheld by DOJ & Sikorsky could continue to be withheld from public view on the basis that its release would reveal trade secrets. CGL’s client, the American Small Business League (ASBL) has been seeking an unredacted version of Sikorsky’s small business subcontracting plan since August 2013.   The Court held that disputed issues of fact require a trial, and that DOJ and Sikorsky were not entitled to a judgment based on the factual record presented to the Court. 01/23/2018.
