Description

The Federal FOIA law was found by WTTG-TV to be severely limited by an outdated archival system at the U.S. Justice Department's FBI File warehouse. The news organization tested the FBI's system by filing for more than three dozen FOIA requests, discovering that the FBI uses a system J. Edgar Hoover developed in the 1930s.
