U.S. Treasury Determined to Prevent Release of Documents

U.S. District Court, District of Columbia
[Latest update 21 June 2017, additional filings]  On May 22, 2017, U.S. Treasury yet again delayed production of documents Ordered by Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on April 13 by filing a Motion for Reconsideration – U.S. Treasury is continuing their obstructive behavior to avoid compliance with the Judge's Order and avoid production of these documents.
After causing multiple time consuming court exchanges, U.S. Treasury was Ordered by Judge Sullivan on June 7, 2017, to provide redacted Documents.  On June 14, and June 19, 2017, U.S. Treasury again delayed compliance by filing a Notice of Appeal and Motion for Stay.

Status of our Fight for our Pensions

Today, the Delphi salaried retirees are closer than ever to winning their case for restoration of their full pensions.  We remain united, confident, and more determined than ever to see justice prevail in our legal battle.
For almost eight years, U.S. taxpayer-paid government lawyers have taken advantage of every procedural roadblock the law allows in an effort to keep from us emails and other evidence that are relevant proving to our case.
Our legal team has won and reviewed – from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, U.S. Treasury Department, and other sources – more than 100,000 documents totaling over a million pages.  Virtually every ruling by Federal judges in Detroit, Cincinnati, and Washington over this time has supported our request for transparency so we can gain the evidence we need to have our “day in court.”
The most recent – and highly notable – ruling was made by U.S. District Judge Emmett G. Sullivan in Washington on April 13, 2017.  His Opinion and Order required that we be given 63 documents that the government sought to keep from us under the assertion of “presidential communication privilege.”

Order and Opinion: U.S. Treasury to Produce Documents, Wasted Court's Precious Time!

U.S. District Court, District of Columbia
On December 20, 2016, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan issued an Order and Opinion requiring the U.S. Treasury to (1) produce "forthwith" many of the remaining documents they have been claiming are privileged, and (2) produce by January 10, 2017, a new Privilege Log for the remaining documents along with "submission clearly articulating why each document, or document portion, is protected by the privilege asserted."
Judge Sullivan noted that the U.S. Treasury "has essentially wasted this Court’s precious and limited time" and that, when challenged, the U.S. Treasury had already revoked its claims of privilege for nearly 640 documents.
