S.C. Supreme Court issues opinion on standing and FOIA requests

In Sloan v. Friends of the Hunley, the Court addresses whether a private citizen has standing to bring suit because a public body has refused to respond to a FOIA request. The Court held that the citizen has standing and that FOIA does not require the information seeker to have a "personal stake in the outcome."
