New Data Confirm DOJ’s Subpar FOIA Performance

"A new analysis of FOIA cases filed in the U.S. District Courts reveals that fully 30 percent of all FOIA lawsuits filed last year were brought against the Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ also accounted for a similar percentage of the FOIA administrative appeals that were filed by requesters seeking to have the initial decisions by government FOIA officers overturned." - The FOIA Project, May 24, 2012.
