EFF Plans Return to Washington

“The Electronic Frontier Foundation, the original digital rights group, is venturing inside the Beltway once again. EFF has hired two attorneys experienced in suing the federal government under the Freedom of Information Act and plans to open an office in downtown Washington, D.C., on Aug. 1.

“One of EFF’s new hires is expected to be Marcia Hofmann, staff counsel at the Electronic Privacy Information Center, who has made headlines for suing the U.S. Justice Department and Homeland Security in an effort to document government wrongdoing and privacy invasions. A lawsuit currently in progress attempts to force the Bush administration to reveal documents about allegedly illegal surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency.

“The other new hire is expected to be David Sobel, EPIC’s general counsel and an FOIA litigator since 1982, who will work part-time.”
