Public Citizen, a leading government watchdog organization, has launched a new clinic designed to help other non-profits bring lawsuits under the federal Freedom of Information Act.

The clinic, started this month, will provide free legal assistance to requesters from the start of the process to a challenge of an agency’s decision in court. The services are limited to non-profit organizations only.

Public Citizen’s FOI clearinghouse will continue to host information for all requesters on the FOIA process, while the new clinic will house a database of FOIA requests made by non-profits and the results of those requests.
