Partners Fight Agencies on FOIA Fees

Cause of Action and the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) are fighting against the denial of fee waivers for documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act. The Federal Trade Commission denied Cause of Action’s request to waive the fee for processing documents related to the agency’s social media and blogger advertising policies. TRAC recently filed suit against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Homeland Security for improperly designating the group as a commercial government requester.
