About Government Accountability & Oversight
At the beginning of 2018, after several successful years pursuing transparency among activist bureaucrats, office holders and even law enforcement, experienced attorneys from the litigation, prosecutorial and classical liberal think tank worlds joined together to create the non-profit public interest law firm Government Accountability & Oversight, P.C.
GAO will prosecute litigation intended to bring transparency to the actions of government at state, local, and federal levels. It will work to lessen the burdens of government and defend human, civil and property rights guaranteed by the constitution and secured by law.
GAO will engage in litigation to protect public interests in economic liberty where taxing or permitting activities, property right restrictions and other extant or proposed regulatory or other policy impediments threaten to limit those interests.
GAO intends to provide: (a) support for such described litigation; (b) national litigation coordination and assistance; (c) clinical instruction to law students; and, (d) free-market environmental law and related practice education to attorneys.
GAO has research, legal, investigative journalism and publication functions, in addition to its transparency initiative seeking public records relating to environmental and energy policy and how policymakers use public resources, all of which include broad dissemination of public information obtained under open records and freedom of information laws.
GAO has begun initiating information requests of several governmental subdivisions, with many more planned. In coming weeks we will post more on these activities, their revelations, and how these play in the policy and legal world, and how the activities they detail impact your lives.
As a charitable organization, contributions to GAO are tax deductible under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
We’re a group of passionate people helping bring transparency to the actions of government.
