Jennifer Borg, Of Counsel at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C., was recently quoted by Sportico in an article titled, “Army Athletics Turn Over Financial Records Following FOIA Suit.” The article discusses how Army West Point Athletic Association, the legal entity that administers the military academy’s Division I sports programs, has begun turning over the first batch of what could eventually be thousands of pages of financial and contractual records that it has previously refused to make public. The academy’s intercollegiate sports arm had long snubbed Freedom of Information Act requests, claiming it is not subject to federal disclosure laws.

“It is unfortunate that a lawsuit was required to get information FOIA requires to be made public, but the decision by West Point to move its athletics program to a nonprofit is part of a growing trend of government agencies creating nonprofits and outsourcing government functions in an effort to avoid public scrutiny. The outcome here is important, because public access to government information is essential for democracy to function,” said Jennifer Borg.
