FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT GUIDE & PRIVACY ACT OVERVIEW (MAY 2000 ED.),

   Updated by the U.S. Department of Justice every year, this is an excellent, comprehensive depiction of the current law of FOIA. Extremely well documented (lots of footnotes). Helpful also because it will be a frequent reference point used by the government attorneys who will be your worthy adversaries; it helps you to know what the other side is using for ammunition. Occasionally limited by its biases, some analysis incorrectly asserts a stronger position for the government than the statute or case law would indicate. The entire text is available online at: http://www.usdoj.gov/oip/foi-act.htm. A printed copy can be had for $53.00 from:

LITIGATION UNDER THE FEDERAL OPEN GOVERNMENT LAWS: THE PRIVACY ACT; THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT; THE FEDERAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE ACT; THE GOVERNMENT IN THE SUNSHINE ACT; THE 1996 ELECTRONIC FOIA AMENDMENTS.

   Currently out of print, this book was updated almost every year. This venerable handbook was published by the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation. Organized in an annotated outline format, it is very easy to use while providing a very complete foundation for working the government access laws. While neutral in tone and content, the authors' biases in favor of public access seem occasionally to be reflected by recommendations of "creative" legal arguments which may be a bit ahead of the juristic curve. Nevertheless, an outstanding reference which is very accessible to those without any legal training. If you can find it in your law library, its well worth checking out.

FOIA UPDATE, (Quarterly Newsletter).

The subscription price for the printed version was recently raised to $10.00 per year (four issues) ((Stock number: 727-002-00000-6), but its still a very good source of information for cheap.
