JFK Records Lawsuit

Latest developments in the case: On March 17, the MFF issued an appeal of Judge Seeborg's January 18 ruling, in which the judge denied an injunction blocking the Transparency Plans among other matters. The appeals court has set a date for opening briefs on April 15. On other matters remaining active in the case, we are preparing to engage these issues with the National Archives in court.

MFF Files Lawsuit Over JFK Records

On October 19, 2022, the Mary Ferrell Foundation, a non-profit archive with the internet's largest collection of searchable JFK records, filed a lawsuit against President Biden and the National Archives for failing to implement the 1992 JFK Records Act. These failures have resulted in confusion, gaps in the records, over-classification, and outright denial of thousands of assassination-related files, five years after the law's deadline for full disclosure.
