A little ray of justice in the sunshine world

Kentucky’s attorney general ruled this week that the Urban County Council in Lexington violated the Kentucky Open Records Act last month.

The council denied a request for e-mails “sent to and from District 2 Councilman Tom Blues’ city e-mail address” by a write-in candidate for the District 2 seat, Randy Tobia.

The AG said, “Although Mr. Tobia’s request was broad in scope, the council failed to demonstrate the existence of an unreasonable burden in producing the requested records, by clear and convincing evidence, and its denial therefore constituted a violation of the Open Records Act.”
