A University of Washington law-school student has filed a federal Freedom of Information lawsuit alleging the Central Intelligence Agency has illegally withheld information about an El Salvador Army officer suspected of human-rights violations during that country's civil war. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Manuchehri by attorneys from the Seattle law firm Davis Wright Tremaine, alleges the CIA has withheld documents sought under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), even though some have been released elsewhere. The action also challenges the CIA's denial of records relating to UCLA professor Philippe Bourgois. The lawsuit was filed in conjunction with a conference at the UW School of Law that will include other survivors of the Santa Cruz massacre and other human-rights experts.
