Litigation Under the Federal Open Government Laws is the most comprehensive, authoritative discussion of the federal open access laws. This updated version includes new material regarding the substantial FOIA amendments enacted on December 31, 2007. Many of the recent amendments are effective as of December 31, 2008. The standard reference work includes in-depth analysis of litigation under:

  • Freedom of Information Act
  • Privacy Act
  • Federal Advisory Committee Act
  • Government in the Sunshine Act
The fully updated 2008 volume is the 24th edition of the manual that lawyers, journalists and researchers have relied on for more than 25 years. Litigation Under the Federal Open Government Laws is published by EPIC in cooperation with Access Reports and the James Madison Project. The book draws upon the expertise of practicing attorneys who are recognized experts in the field. The 24th edition includes updates concerning the OPEN Government Act of 2007, a revised chapter regarding litigation strategy, international open government resources, a glossary of key terms, and is updated with new significant cases.

Appendices include a sample FOIA request, a sample request for expedited processing, and sample pleadings for the FOIA, the Privacy Act, and Federal Advisory Commission Act, and the Government in the Sunshine Act.

For those who litigate open government cases, or need to learn how to litigate them, this is an essential reference manual.

Review:

The EPIC FOIA litigation manual remains the one indispensable tool for any lawyer representing clients seeking information from a federal agency or any lawyer thinking about bringing a FOIA case against the government. The book is a comprehensive, thoughtful, and easy-to-follow guide to open government litigation and is invaluable to practitioners. --Professor David Vladeck, Georgetown University Law Center

Deserves a place in the library of everyone who is involved in, or thinking about, litigation under the Freedom of Information Act. --Steve Aftergood, Federation of American Scientists
