A fascinating tour of a powerful New York State law that continues to impact residents.

"An engaging and informative read. Orzechowski deploys anecdotes skillfully, and he manages to bring the day-to-day workings of FOIL to life through a rich set of stories about requesters, reporters, public information officers, and the government officials whose records are sought."—David Pozen, Columbia School of Law

"For 40 years, New York’s citizens and journalists have been using the Freedom of Information Law to pry open government’s secrets and cast light on what elected officials are up to. In this highly readable account, Brett Orzechowski tells their story, recounting their battles, large and small, to make New York government more open and accountable. Much remains to be done, but this book will be an inspiration to those who will carry on the fight for transparency for the next 40 years.”"—David E. McCraw, vice president and deputy general counsel, the New York Times Company


  Brett Orzechowski is assistant professor of management and media at Utica College. Previously, he served as CEO of The Connecticut Mirror, a public policy news organization covering Hartford and Washington, DC.
