Seems the DOJ does a whole lot of stonewalling on information requests these days.

Leading senators: Kagan may have to recuse herself from health case - Washington Times

Quote:
Top Republican senators said late Friday the Justice Department has been stonewalling their request for more information on Supreme CourtJustice Elena Kagan, and said her previous work as solicitor general “may satisfy both requirements for recusal” from the upcoming health-care case.

The senators, led by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, are demanding Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. comply with requests for more documents about Justice Kagan’s role in planning the administration’s defense, and said unless he provides the information it could undermine confidence in the court’s eventual ruling on the case.

They enforce only the laws that Holder has heard about and likes. The FOIA must be one of the ones he doesn't like so no enforcement is coming.

The last thing I read today about this one is that she will not recuse herself and of course it will be because nobody has proved that she planned the defense of the Law from Hell. They really believe that if they can find a way to keep the one non-liberal they are after from hearing and speaking they can keep it in force with even a 4 -4 vote.
