Description

The Illinois Freedom of Information Act and the Open Meetings Act are more than journalistic tools of the trade. In addition to those familiar uses of FOIA requests and OMA invocations, these Acts can also become effective means for attorneys to obtain access to information in matters ranging from marital disputes to estate litigation. This handbook offers multi-perspective guidance on Illinois’ sunshine laws from authors including counsel for governmental units as well as for media outlets. Understand these two useful Acts through chapters explaining the particulars of procedures, exemptions, and enforcement under both the Illinois FOIA and the OMA. Other topics concern identifying public bodies and public records, protecting sensitive records, and a discussion of the ethical aspects of public disclosure laws. You will be “in the know” with author discussions of recent caselaw in this universal resource that has a place in every Illinois attorney’s library.
