The guy in this article seems to have turned the table on John Q. Law.
In a nut shell, a guy made a public records request per Ohio Revised Code (ORC) for 20 years of 911 recordings--form 1975 - 1995--from the Ohio City of New Philadelphia. The City could not produce the records pursuant ORC. ORC provides that the party that does not produce the requested records can be fined a $1, 000 for non-compliance per request per day. So, the guy calculates that he is entitled to $4.9 mil and asks for the money.
Law suits follow.
OK. You elected officials that read these pages will howl that this is a frivolous request and a frivolous law suit.
Just because the government and its agents can't do their job does it make the request frivolous?
Perhaps some public records requests will go into some Lake County entities.
