VIDEO | Freedom of Information Act Litigation: United States and France
Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in the U.S. and its counterpart in France (called “CADA”), anyone may request access to records held by any government agency with narrow exceptions (national security, personal privacy, criminal investigations, etc.). Both FOIA & CADA statutes also allow for lawsuits if the government improperly withholds information. This lecture will give a practitioner-oriented overview of FOIA in the U.S. and CADA in France and compare FOIA/CADA-related litigation in both countries.
