June 15, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
So you’ve sent in your FOIA request…now what? This training is all about what comes next. How long should you wait? How can you nudge the process along? What if the agency denies your request? And when do lawsuits get filed? In this training, we’ll give you practical tips to get past your FOIA roadblocks. We’ll tell you how to talk to FOIA officers and show you how to deal with common types of delays and hassles. For the FOIA nerds, we’ll also dive into the world of FOIA appeals. We’ll explain the government’s go-to arguments for denying FOIA requests, and show you how we fight back.
