March 11, 2015: The Associated Press sues the State Department to force the release of Clinton’s documents that the department has failed to turn over.

The Associated Press made various Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests long before the Clinton email scandal became publicly known. In some cases, the requests were made five years earlier, as far back as May 2010, and still hadn’t been fulfilled. The requests don’t involve emails but are mostly for Clinton’s calendars and schedules. (The Associated Press, 3/11/2015) (The Associated Press, 8/7/2015) (The New York Times, 3/3/2015)

The Associated Press will finally get some of the documents in July 2016.  (The Associated Press, 6/24/2016)
