Judicial Watch: The nation's FOIA champion
By Jennifer Harper

One conservative government watchdog is a busy place indeed. Judicial Watch leads the nation’s nonprofit organizations in the number of Freedom of Information Act requests — FOIAs — it has filed during the last 17 years. So says the FOIA Project, a Syracuse University research program which tracks those requests and who makes them. There were 626 nonprofit groups which filed the requests during a study period from Jan. 21, 2001, when President George W. Bush assumed office, through July 31, 2018, — all seeking government accountability or insight into specific policy arenas like the environment, immigration and national security.
