Prying Open the Door on the Black Panther Case

Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today announced that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (CV 10-0160)) against the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) to obtain records related to meetings between Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli and White House officials regarding DOJ’s decision to dismiss its voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense (NBPP). Judicial Watch seeks the following documents through its FOIA request sent on January 19, 2010:

Any and all records of Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli concerning meetings with the White House on the Justice Department’s voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party. The time frame for this request is from January 20, 2009 to June 15, 2009.

On March 26, 2010, the DOJ informed Judicial Watch that it had conducted a search for documents, but found “no records responsive to your request.” Judicial Watch appealed the decision on March 31, 2010, based on “various media accounts in which it was reported that Associate Attorney General Perrelli visited the White House on nine occasions between March 25, 2009, and May 27, 2009, to discuss Defendant’s voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party.”

The DOJ was required to make a determination on Judicial Watch’s appeal within 20 working days, or by May 3, 2010. To date, no such determination has been made.

  1. I USE TO WORK FOR IN HOME HEALTH CARE AND THEIR UNION WAS SEIU, I HATE UNIONS AND I DEFINATLY HATE THIS ONE! I'M AT A DILEMMA IS I NEED TO WORK. I'VE BEEN OFF WORK SINCE JAN 10 OF THIS YEAR. THE SEIU HAS THIS TOWN HOG TIED. MY SISTER WORKS TWO DIFFERENT JOBS AND SEIU IS THE UNION AND DO YOU KNOW THEY CHARGE HER TWO DIFFERENT UNION DUE'S? THIS IS WRONG AND IT'S EXTORTION! THEY ARE GOING TO CALL ME TODAY AT 4 PM PACIFIC TIME TO ASK QUESTIONS AND I WANT TO GIVE IT TO THEM WHEN THEY CALL. I WILL PROBABLY BE BLACK BALLES BY THIS UNION AND NEVER BE ABLE TO GET A JOB IN MY TOWN AGAIN. BUT….I NEED TO STAND UP TO THESE PEOPLE AND LET THEM KNOW JUST WHAT I FEEL FOR THEM AND WHAT THEY DO. GIVE OBAMA AND HIS GOON'S THEIR WALKING PAPERS, OR SHOULD I SAY THEIR SLITHERING PAPERS NEXT ELECTION!!

    • I applaud you for standing up to this thuggery. b.o. has set us back in time and it's got to stop. Please encourage all your friends and family to vote in the conservatives in November so that this kind of oppression and pandering to special interests stops. These goons need to be further investigated once there is a changing of the guard.

      Good luck and hang in there!

      • All the good old boy Republicans are not what they seem. We already know the Dems are slime!
        The backbones of those in office will not stand up to obummer. DC is full of thugs on both sides of the isle.
        We can only hope that the new guys running on the Republican ticket will win out. The people will have to vote them in!
        Looks like WE the PEOPLE have to stand up and fight back. Our representatives and senators won't support us. All talk and no action. Every one of them should be ousted each November they come up for reelection untileach and every one of the back-stabbers is gone.

        Lynn, If you did not know, one of our Texas senators is reported to have met with a homo group for a fund raising last night. This senator is walking on egg shells when it comes his turn for running again. I called DC and found out this was true.

        Rose Mary is a true patriot and definitely should be applauded. We all need to stand up and fight back! Thank you Rose Mary.

          Everybody, look at this heading. Can you believe this? This is posted on my college campus schedule of meetings with no consideration that this union horse s**t may be offensive to True Americans. It s disgusting and the union spent millions in pro Obama 4-color multiple page booklets and lets not talk about the cost for millions of copies worth of US Mail postage! All pro Obama and Pro Dream Act, pro Boxer, Pro Feinstein and Pro Jerry Brown!!!!! Each disgusting slime!
          There is a way for all of us who are in unions is to say No!!!!! There is a way to dis-enroll and stop paying dues. Refuse the union and we can use that money in other ways. I have a plan to put a stop to this political action free money commie machine — but i cant do it alone
          All of us in unions have to re-unite as non-union Americans for America and pro- Constitution.
          These unions steal your money support commies and socialists with your money and still threaten or beat you up at you job site PLUS dilute your American Rights!!! We can fight back through a united ANTI-UNION STAND. I dont know whether to post my email but I think we can beat the Unions

    • Rose Mary…My heart breaks for you.You're not alone. Try to record the conversation if you can.At least you'll have a record of it.Never know when it might come in handy! Please don't forget to vote them out.

    • thats right, Unions extort money from it's members. It is too bad that people just don't see that and revolt against the unions. I had a UAW shop steward come to me a long time ago and told me I was working too had at my job. I told him to get away from me or I would kick his ass, just like i kicked his brothers ass a few years prior to that. It was my only union job for 8 months, I NEVER had another. Stop paying dues…

    How much more of this arrogant felon do we have to take? Why can't anything be done to this guy? Can you even imagine Dubya being in this position, with the frauds, briberies and lies? I am praying that come November, we can cut both legs off of this duck and send him packing. A true day of celebration when they take him out of the white house in handcuffs! And are we going to deport his aunt? I hope so. Tis a season of sending messages! We will get our America back, despite this crook!
