Summary:

Twenty-three years after suing the FBI for not responding to a FOIA request for information about a Nixon administration plan to deport John Lennon, University of California-Irvine history professor Jonathan Wiener is still waiting for pieces of information that were not released during a 1997 settlement, the National Law Journal reported. Wiener filed the original FOIA request as a young graduate student in 1983.

Keywords:

John Lennon, Beatle, surveillance, deport, University of California-Irvine,

Impact:

Soon thereafter, the Los Angeles Times reported that the Bureau agreed to release the remaining files. See "FBI to release last of its John Lennon files" (12/20/06, http://articles.latimes.com/2006/dec/20/local/me-lennon20). "Fresh Air," a National Public Radio program, re-ran a 2000 interview with Wiener on October 8, 2010 (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130401193).
