Justin Raimondo
The FBI has agreed to turn over records it created when it spied on two journalists and has agreed to pay $299,000 to settle their attorneys’ fees, reports Court House News.

With the ACLU’s help, Journalists Eric Garris and Dennis "Justin" Raimondo sued the FBI in 2013, after they learned the agency was monitoring their libertarian news website

According to Garris and Raimondo, they learned about the surveillance after their names appeared in another FOIA request posted online. Documents in that request included an FBI memo revealing that the agency had conducted a threat assessment of the two men and in 2004, and that an FBI analyst had suggested looking into whether their activity could “constitute a threat to national security on behalf of a foreign power.”
