A University of California professor has won a major case against the FBI after they refused to let him read their secret files on John Lennon.
JONATHAN WIENER has spent the past 20 years trying to get access to the files, but was told that some pages would never be released because they might pose a national security risk - because a foreign government secretly provided the information.
However, on Tuesday (28SEP04), US District Judge ROBERT TAKASUGI rejected government arguments and ordered FBI officials to turn over their complete files for Wiener's studies.
Professor Wiener originally sued the government for the documents in 1983 under the Freedom of Information Act.
The files, which were gathered from 1971 to 1972, reportedly contain no allegations Lennon was involved in planning or committing illegal acts.
Wiener has written two Lennon books, COME TOGETHER: JOHN LENNON IN HIS TIME and GIMME SOME TRUTH: THE JOHN LENNON FBI FILES.30/09/2004 21:10
