In which I sue the government

So, remember when ICE held a press conference and claimed that disparaging a mark constituted counterfeiting?  I ended up filing a FOIA request to figure out under what circumstances ICE took this position, and since it was denied, I am now--with the wonderful assistance of Georgetown's Institute for Public Representation--suing to have the requested documents released.  We don't actually know very much about the government's anti-counterfeiting operations, and I'm looking forward to finding out more and examining whether the government's working definition of counterfeiting fits with what the statute really says.

(See, now I really do need a "my lawsuits" tag.)
