‘Transparent’ Obama Administration Facing Record Number Of Lawsuits Over Access To Public Information
By Andrew Perez

President Barack Obama said in 2013 that he has led the “most transparent administration in history.” But in the two years since, the federal government has received more complaints than ever for not fulfilling public record requests. An analysis by Syracuse University found that individuals have filed record numbers of federal lawsuits in consecutive years against government agencies for failing to comply with requests made under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The law is used by members of the media and the public to obtain records from federal agencies — including communications and contract details.
