The Center for Media and Democracy may settle open records case

From Sawyer County Record: The Center for Media and Democracy (CMD), a Madison-based research and reporting group, is currently in settlement negotiations with the state attorney general's office over an open records case.

CMD sued Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa) for refusing to turn over documents under Wisconsin's open records law. The documents involve the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a group that works with corporations and conservatives to write model legislation. The state attorney general's office is representing Vukmir and has argued lawmakers are immune from lawsuit during the two-year legislative session. Lisa Graves, the executive director of the Center for Media and Democracy, disagrees.
