From Politico:

A Muslim group's Freedom of Information Act lawsuit demanding the text of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's main investigative manual has suffered a setback as a result of a judge's ruling last week.

Muslim Advocates is seeking access to the FBI's Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide, a 689-page tome that sets the rules FBI agents are required to follow when pursuing investigations and dictates when internal approvals are required for using specific tactics, such as surveillance.
