Judicial Watch lawsuit demands records about Dr. Anthony Fauci’s wife’s health-agency job
JW is already working on two other Fauci-related FOIA lawsuits on behalf of OpenTheBooks.com
AFreedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit is demanding that the Department of Health and Human Services turn over financial and employment records regarding Christine Grady, the director of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Bioethics Center and wife of Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Judicial Watch announced on Monday that it filed the lawsuit on behalf of American Transparency, also known as OpenTheBooks.com.
Health and Human Services failed to respond to a FOIA request from OpenTheBooks.com in April.
The plaintiffs are seeking information about Grady’s job description and her employment contracts, as well as any ethics waivers, financial disclosures or confidentiality agreements she may have signed.
“Once again, NIH is using taxpayer dollars to avoid transparency, and leaving us no choice but to enter litigation that will also burden the taxpayer,” said CEO and founder of OpenTheBooks.com, Adam Andrzejewski. “It’s time for NIH to stop routinely hiding information as simple as a job description and embrace basic transparency. We thank our friends at Judicial Watch for helping us get the answers we deserve.”
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “We have good reason to believe that these financial disclosure records will give Americans a more complete picture of the conflicts of interest that have compromised NIH and Dr. Fauci ... That our client had to file a federal lawsuit to gain access to this basic information speaks volumes.”
Judicial Watch is already working on two other FOIA lawsuits on behalf of OpenTheBooks.com.
One suit against HHS asks for employment information about White House medical adviser Dr. Fauci, who is head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The other lawsuit asks for Fauci’s calendar.

We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent.
