ATI appeal to NASA

The response to the appeal made by ATI concerning personal information related to Jim Hansen's requests for permission related to outside activity has now been filed.


Unsurprisingly, NASA has reaffirmed that information related to personnel matters is exempt from FOIA disclosure and that absent any prior evidence of misconduct, there is no compelling public interest that would trump the concerns of privacy protection.

On the second issue related to a potential misreading of one of ATI's requests, the issue has been remanded to NASA GSFC for a de novo search for relevant documents.

Issues: personal information exemptions, existence of records
