A federal judge on Thursday sharply criticized Attorney General William P. Barr’s handling of the report by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, saying that Mr. Barr put forward a "distorted" and "misleading" account of its findings and lacked credibility on the topic.
Judge Reggie B. Walton said Mr. Barr could not be trusted and cited "inconsistencies" between his statements about the report when it was secret and its actual contents that turned out to be more damaging to President Trump. Judge Walton said Mr. Barr’s "lack of candor" called "into question Attorney General Barr’s credibility and, in turn, the department’s" assurances to the court.

I am Josh Burday, one of the lawyers suing the federal government to force the release of the rest of the Mueller Report. The case was referenced here yesterday:
I do this type of work full-time and previously sued the FCC forcing it to release a bevy of records related to the infamous repeal of Net Neutrality.
I am also currently suing the Department of Defense for records related to NSA's failure to prevent 9/11 despite the fact that we now know it could have. While this case is ongoing, we have already forced the release of previously classified records confirming everything the whistleblowers (former top ranking NSA officials) alleged. There is a documentary on Netflix and YouTube about it: "A Good American."
I am litigating this case with my colleague Matt Topic and the rest of the Transparency Team at Loevy & Loevy. Matt is best known for being the lead attorney in the Laquan McDonald shooting video case as well as this case. We have also forced the release of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s “private” emails and countless more police shooting videos in Illinois.
While there are a small number of other attorneys who do this type of work, almost all of them work in-house for organizations. As far as I am aware we are the only team in the country doing this work at a private firm full-time and representing both major media organizations and regular people. We are able to represent regular people at no charge because under the Freedom of Information Act when we win a case the government has to pay all of our attorneys' fees and costs.
