Open Government Advocates Back Florida Suit

The NFOIC, the Florida First Amendment Foundation, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation for Freedom of Information have backed a lawsuit by Preston Colby against the Board of County Commissioners in Highlands County, Florida with $3,000 in grant money to pay filing fees. The suit seeks hand-written notes taken during government meetings.

The matter went to trial in February 2010, but no decision has been rendered yet.
