Lawsuit against Ebert-Foundation for access to information - initiated in November 2018

Regarding my proceedings before the Federal Constitutional Court referring to hiding official documents in private archives, the judges asked the party foundations for their opinion and all six, including the Lefts and Greens, promoted the position of the conservative Adenauer Foundation they declared themselves in favor of hiding records of the state. The social democratic foundation Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) even ordered the law firm that traditionally represents the Chancellery Redeker, Sellner and Dahs to emit an opinion of its own. I wanted to know the amount of the fees that the foundation almost 100% funded by the State Treasury paid the attorney. FES argued that they are a private institution and therefore exempted from the obligation to provide information. We will see how the higher courts will judge that.
