Abstract : This compilation of cases and materials is designed to provide students with primary source material concerning government information practices. The right of the American public to be informed about the operation of its government has been established. Through the Freedom of Information Act, Congress has sought to ensure that this right is preserved. Of equal importance to American citizens is their right of privacy. Only in recent years has it become evident that this right is subject to infringement by the record keeping practices of government. The Privacy Act of 1974 is the first comprehensive legislative scheme designed to assure individuals that their privacy will not be improperly eroded by such practices.
