Secretary of State Jim Condos Applauds Court Decision on Attorneys Fees
Montpelier, VT- The Vermont State Employees Union has been awarded attorney’s fees and related costs in a recent lawsuit against the State of Vermont regarding the state’s efforts to charge a fee to view public records.
Superior Court Judge Crawford had ruled in January, “The plain language of § 316(c) expressly carries forward the distinction between inspection and copying… The authority to “charge and collect the cost of staff time” under § 316(c) is triggered by a ‘request for a copy of a public record,’ not by a request to inspect records. The reference to the ‘delivery of the copies’ makes clear that the legislature is referring to duplicates that the requester will take possession of.”
Thank you for your Support!
We won…and we did it together!!
I am so honored to have been elected by you and other Vermonters to serve as Secretary of State.
Thank you all so much for your support! I could not have won this race without your help.
