The DWT team of Thomas R. Burke, Greg Chaimov, Brendan Charney, Dan Laidman, Aysha Lewis, Derek Green, Eric Stahl, and Rochelle Wilcox was honored by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California for work holding the federal government to its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) obligations and ensuring public access to critical information about how the Trump administration enforced the 2017 Muslim travel ban on the West Coast. DWT's "crack team of First Amendment and FOIA specialists... expertly hounded the government for troves of documents," said ACLU SoCal staff attorney Mohammad Tajsar in presenting the award at the organization's 25th annual luncheon.
