Baker Botts Files FOIA Suit Against SEC over Yukos Docs

Baker Botts sued the SEC on Tuesday in Houston federal district court, claiming that the agency illegally withheld documents that the firm first requested nearly a year ago. In an 8-page complaint filed by the firm on its own behalf, Baker Botts alleges that the SEC refused to turn over attendance lists, minutes, notes, visitor logs, and other materials from meetings with Yukos representatives in 2002 and 2003, when the company was considering a public listing on the New York Stock Exchange. The complaint seeks the release of the documents and an award of attorneys’ fees.
