In 2006-2008, Taşcă won two cases concerning the denial of access to information opened against the Information and Security Service of the Republic of Moldova, which denied access to its archive.

On March 18, 2008 Mihai Taşcă submitted an application to the Ministry of Justice, seeking access to the files of the political parties; he intended to carry out a study about the election campaigns. On April 15, the Ministry rejected the application. After the second refusal, the researcher sued the Ministry to the Court of Appeal on June 17. On September 30, 2008, the court ordered that the Ministry of Justice offers Taşcă the filed he asked for.
