DANIEL R. NOVACK

Dan has been described as "an enterprising First Amendment attorney" by Vanity Fair. He has also been hung up on by the Justice Department's FOIA office . . . repeatedly.  

All of Dan's FOIA representations are undertaken pro bono, because Dan loves journalism. Prior to his career in law, Dan's news media experience included running his school newspapers and being run out of his school newspapers. 

To paraphrase Conan the Barbarian, if you ask Dan what is best in life, he would say: "To sue for public records, see redactions driven before me, and to hear the lamentations of the Assistant United States Attorneys, Civil Division."
