New website tracks federal FOIA lawsuits
By Christine Beckett

FOIAproject.org was created and launched by Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a data gathering, research and distribution organization at Syracuse University. TRAC co-director David Burnham, an investigative writer and former New York Times reporter, said the project idea came from the organization's personal experience with FOIA lawsuits. Burnham said he and co-director Susan Long, also a professor at the university, ran into "very serious efforts by [some federal agencies] not to provide information that they are required to."
