A new lawsuit has been filed to obtain records regarding unidentified flying objects (UFOs), in a fresh attempt to uncover the U.S. government’s purported role in covering up the existence of UFOs.

Larry Klayman, founder of both Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch announced the move, suing the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

Klayman is known for his strong public interest advocacy in furtherance of ethics in government and individual freedoms and liberties.

The saga stems back to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by Freedom Watch to the Department of Defense back in December 22, 2011.

That request involved the production of agency records related to extraterrestrial visits, UFO encounters, Area 51, the Roswell incident and extraterrestrial life information regarding the United Nations, Great Britain and the United States.

Bad faith obstruction

Eight years later, the public interest group’s Freedom of Information Act request did result in documents, with nearly all of them in Russian.

However, in a July 18, 2019 complaint to DoD from Freedom Watch, it explains:

“The great majority of the de minimus production of records was in Russian and was not responsive to the original request, filed about 8 years earlier.”

“This is tantamount to a denial and complete bad faith obstruction of justice, as it is clear that Defendant DoD is suppressing and illegally withholding relevant records as part of a cover-up,” the complaint explains. “Defendant DoD dishonestly produced non-responsive documents conveniently and overwhelmingly in Russian…”

Voluminous records

The complaint continues citing the fact that U.S. Senators recently received a classified briefing on confirmed sightings UFOs by our military pilots and others, “and it is now widely accepted that the U.S. government possesses voluminous records and information about the existence of UFO’s and related matters as set forth in Plaintiff’s FOIA request.”
