Judicial Watch (JW) is an American conservative activist group[1] and self-styled watchdog group[2][3] that files Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits to investigate alleged misconduct by government officials.

Founded in 1994, JW has primarily targeted Democrats, in particular the Clinton administration, the Obama administration, and Hillary Clinton, although it has sued Republicans as well including the administration of George W. Bush. It has also filed lawsuits against government climate scientists; Judicial Watch has described climate science as "fraud science". The group has made numerous false and unsubstantiated claims, which have been picked up by right-wing news outlets. Most of its lawsuits have been dismissed.[1]

Funding

Judicial Watch has an annual budget of about $35 million.[1] Between 1997 and 2002 Judicial Watch received $7,069,500 in 19 grants from a handful of foundations. The bulk of this funding came from three foundations: the Sarah Scaife Foundation, a funder of politically conservative causes;[4] The Carthage Foundation, which merged into the Sarah Scaife Foundation in 2014;[5] and the John M. Olin Foundation, Inc.,[citation needed] another conservative foundation which folded in 2005.[6] As of 2010, the Sarah Scaife Foundation was the group's largest contributor.[7]
