FOIA Lawsuits Reach Record High

“Freedom of Information complaints filed against the government — 498 in FY 2015 — are higher than they have ever been, according to a new analysis of fifteen years of court data by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). The data further show that in the two-year period of FY 2014 – 2015 under President Obama, there were 64 percent more FOIA lawsuits filed than during the last two years (FY 2007 – 2008) of the Bush Administration. The full FOIA report was developed by TRAC for the FOIA Project is available here.”
