City prevails in former employee’s public records lawsuit, Florida

From The Gainesville Sun:

A circuit court judge has ruled that the city of Gainesville did not violate the state’s public records law by requiring that a former employee pay some $40,000 in advance to process a public records request made in connection with an employment discrimination complaint against the city.


The case involved a request that Erin Friedberg, the city’s former visual arts coordinator, made for every email she sent or received while employed by the city from 2003 to 2010.
