Description
 
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires federal agencies to provide the public with access to government information and each year, agencies release information. Nevertheless, many FOIA requests are denied or not responded to in a timely manner. The act allows requesters to litigate if the agency does not respond to a request within the statutory time frames. Over the least decade, the Justice Department reported 3,350 FOIA lawsuits filed against agencies, with a 57% increase in lawsuits filed since 2006. This report attempted to determine FOIA litigation-related costs incurred by federal agencies for 112 lawsuits in which the plaintiffs substantially prevailed. It found that litigation-related costs for these 112 lawsuits could not be fully determined. Tables and figure. This is a print on demand report.
