Court OKs Advisers' Privacy

United Press International

Records and meetings of the Council of Economic Advisers are not open to the public because the body's sole purpose is to advise the President, a federal appeals court ruled today.

The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, in a 3-0 decision, affirmed a lower court ruling that the economic advisory group is exempt from the Freedom of Information Act and the Government in the Sunshine Act.
