Center for Public Integrity sues EPA over public-records delays

Some public-interest groups and media outlets have complained of significant FOIA delays, which have led to an increased number of lawsuits against the EPA. The Centerís lawsuit was filed by research editor and lawyer Peter Smith, who has brought 24 FOIA cases and prevailed in or settled 14, with five pending. As of late 2016, the Center ranked second among media outlets in its filing of FOIA lawsuits since 2000, with a total of 17 at the time, according to research by the FOIA Project, an initiative from Syracuse Universityís Transactional Records Research Clearinghouse. That put the Center behind only the New York Times.
