SF journalist sues FBI for records about activist

San Francisco journalist Seth Rosenfeld, perhaps best known for a series he wrote for the Chronicle 10 years ago about the FBI’s harassment of students and faculty in the 1960s, is suing the FBI in an attempt to get records about an activist from that period.

According to the SF Weekly, Rosenfeld is seeking records the FBI has witheld concerning activist Richard Masato Aoki, who was involved in groups such as the Young Socialist Alliance and Black Panther Party. Aoki died in 2009 and Rosenfeld argues that any privacy issues ended with the activist’s death.
