By Joe Schoffstall

The amount of Freedom of Information Act lawsuits brought forth against the government has soared under President Obama, hitting a record high in 2015. According to a new study released Tuesday by the FOIA Project, a research organization based at the University of Syracuse, a total of 498 FOIA lawsuits were filed in 2015–an increase from the previous record high of 421 lawsuits in 2014. Throughout Obama’s presidency to date, a total of 2,609 lawsuits have been filed seeking suppressed, redacted, or withheld information from the government.
