Seeking OLC advice on the NDAA
PRM has submitted a FOIA request to the Office of Legal Counsel seeking any opinions or memoranda that the office may have provided to the Obama administration regarding domestic military detention authorities. Debates over such authorities have arisen since the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA).

Seeking Marv Davidov’s FBI files
Long-time Twin Cities peace activist Marv Davidov died on January 14, 2012. Davidov was involved in multiple protest movements during the course of his life, including the decades-long Honeywell Project. That effort sought to dissuade defense contractor Honeywell, International from engaging in the manufacturing of armaments and weapons systems.

During the 1970s and 80s, Davidov became involved in a lawsuit related to FBI infiltration of the Honeywell Project. The suit was settled out of court in 1985. PRM has submitted a FOIA request to the Federal Bureau of Investigation seeking any files related to Davidov.
