Trump administration agrees to pay Public Integrity attorney’s fees after FOIA laws

The FOIA gives journalists and non-journalists alike the “right to request access to records from any federal agency” in the spirit of keeping Americans “in the know about their government.” By law, federal agencies are generally required to respond to FOIA requests within 20 business days. In the journalism field, Public Integrity is a leader in its use of FOIA litigation to obtain documents and data from government agencies. Among news media requesters, only The New York Times and Jason Leopold, now with Buzzfeed, have filed more FOIA lawsuits during the past two decades, according to a study by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Research Clearinghouse.
