Last week, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed a lawsuit against the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Drone Advisory Committee (Committee) to enforce the open government obligations of the Committee. The Committee is an industry-led committee that advised the FAA regarding drone policy in the U.S. EPIC claims that for over one year, the Committee has conducted its work “in secret” and “ignored the privacy risks posed by the deployment of drones.” EPIC claims that the Committee violated the Administrative Procedure Act by failing to open its meetings to the public and failing to make its records open to the public. EPIC hopes to force the Committee to disclose its work to the public as a result of this lawsuit. EPIC’s complaint can be viewed here.
