T&E and others vs European Commission: legal filing on access to documents

At issue is the future regulation of biofuels in Europe. The Commission is withholding time sensitive and critical environmental information necessary for meaningful public participation in biofuel policy-making. In the process, it is setting a dangerous precedent that European Union (EU) institutions may delay the release of documents until after a policy decision has been made, striking at the heart of democracy. With this case, ClientEarth, Transport & Environment, European Environmental Bureau, and BirdLife International seek to uphold their rights to access Commission documents.
