WASHINGTON (AP) - Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett has delivered her first majority opinion.

The 7-2 decision released Thursday is in a case about the federal Freedom of Information Act.

Barrett wrote for the court that certain draft documents are not subject to disclosure under FOIA.

The case was the first one Barrett heard after joining the court in late October. It took four months for the 11-page opinion to be released.

Two liberal justices, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor, dissented.
