®: CRE Regulatory Action of the Week
The D.C. Circuit Reviews the Data Quality Act Again
CRE believes that with the exception of the Supreme Court the only federal court which has the standing and will to consistently counter the Department of Justice on complex issues of administrative law is the DC Circuit. More specifically, for the second time the court has reviewed a federal agency's compliance with the Data Quality Act guidelines. The court could not have conducted the review if judicial review of the DQA were barred, as the Justice Department has argued. In one of the cases, DOJ informed the court of CRE's views and had asked the court to address CRE's concerns (Paragraph 3).
