Center for Reproductive Rights and National Women's Law Center v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

The Center for Reproductive Rights and the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) filed suit against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for refusing to release records related to a new division within the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) dedicated exclusively to enforcing refusal of care laws. 

HHS has refused to release information about how this new division operates, how it is allocating resources, whether and how its decision making is influenced by outside groups, and why it was needed in the first place. The Center and NWLC made the original Freedom of Information Act request in January, which HHS has effectively ignored.

Plaintiff(s): The Center for Reproductive Rights, the National Women's Law Center
