From The Washington Examiner:
The University of Delaware is facing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit over access to former Vice President Joe Biden’s Senate records.
Conservative activist group Judicial Watch announced on Wednesday that it has filed the suiton behalf of itself and the Daily Caller News Foundation, both of which filed previous records requests to the university earlier this year for Biden’s records.
“The University of Delaware should stop protecting Joe Biden and provide the public access to his public records, as Delaware law requires,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Neil Patel, co-founder and president of the Daily Caller, said the university has a legal obligation to turn over Biden’s public records.
“Partisan gamesmanship by a public university is unseemly and unlawful. If they don’t want to do the right thing, we will force them in court,” Patel said.
The files, which have been kept secret since being donated in 2012, could have been released on Dec. 3, but no action was taken to make the collection available to the public. The university has said it won’t release the records until two years after Biden retires from public life, which would be after the 2020 election in which Biden is the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
