On Aug. 24, the group's legal team filed a Freedom of Information Act request demanding the FBI release whatever information led the organization to label their fans (aka Juggalos) a gang.

Since there was no response, the band's reps filed a lawsuit today in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan "for its failure to produce any documentary evidence in support of the FBI's classification of the groups' fan base."
