WASHINGTON — A watchdog group is suing Vice President Dick Cheney and the National Archives and Records to preserve his records of duties in office.

Administration Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a Washington-based nonprofit watchdog group, and three organizations of historians and archivists are suing Mr. Cheney, the Office of the Vice President, the national archivist and the National Archives and Records Administration for exempting his papers from the Presidential Records Act of 1978.

The act requires presidential and vice presidential records of official duties to be preserved for future public access.

The group has already filed a complaint and is seeking a court order that would freeze the vice president’s records to prevent them from being destroyed while the lawsuit is being heard.
