WASHINGTON D.C.- On August 6, 2019, fired former Chief of the Counterespionage Section of the FBI, Peter Strzok filed a civil lawsuit against Attorney General William F. Barr and the FBI to overturn his termination on August 9, 2018.
Since the filing, the case is beginning to move through the court system.
Assigned to Judge Amy Berman Jackson, the case is due to be heard by jury trial on August 7, 2019.
Along with the civil suit filing, four summonses were issued on the same day to William F. Barr, FBI, U.S. DOJ and Christopher A. Wray, current FBI Director.
August 8, 2019: Strzok filed a minute Order, which was granted, to deviate from the local civil rule. The purpose of this filing was to omit his home address from the complaint.
