Issue: (1) Whether the identity of a third party who transacts with a federal agency, and the highly confidential terms of such a transaction, constitutes information "obtained from" that party for purposes of Exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act, which authorizes a federal agency to withhold â€œ trade secrets and commercial or financial information  obtained from a person  privileged or confidentialâ€; and (2) whether information is "confidential" under FOIA Exemption 4 when its disclosure would impair the effectiveness of federal agency programs.
