ASAP Meets Needs of Law School Students

Scott Hodes, ASAP’s immediate past president is going back to school! ASAP was invited to teach a session on how to process an effective FOIA request and the procedures for an appeal. Tasnim Motala, a Fellow at the Thurgood Marshall Center for Civil and Human Rights at Howard University School of Law extended the invitation to ASAP. Given that Scott is an attorney in private practice concentrating on FOIA and Privacy, along with his previous federal service career in FOIA, it was a perfect fit. Scott and Tasnim plan to schedule the session soon.

ASAP Remembers Steve Garfinkel

We are saddened by the passing of Steve, who was a great friend to ASAP. A familiar face to ASAP in the 1990’s and the early 2000’s, he spoke on classification, declassification and implementation of E.O. 12958. Often paired with Steven Aftergood of the AFS, the two presented passionate views, providing an amazing, educational experience. In June 1993, Steve wrote that it was a pleasure appearing before such a knowledgeable group and pleasing to see ASAP maturation as an outstanding professional society. Steve will be missed.
