Gideon Oliver, Law Offices of Gideon Oliver, has been counsel on FOIL matters that have led to large disclosures in cases of public significance, including cases: that led to the “discovery” and disclosure of thousands of “lost” NYPD political surveillance files; in which the NYPD has been ordered to disclose records regarding Ramarley Graham to his family; and that forced NYPD to follow 2006 E-FOIL requirements, resulting in the FOIL@NYPD.org and FOILAPPEALS@NYPD.org email addresses.
