Little Rock attorney Sam Perroni is taking on the Arkansas Judicial Discipline & Disability Commission for failing to hand over documents related to an investigation of Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Tim Fox.

Perroni sued the Commission and its executive director, David Stewart, under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act for failing to release the names of the people who were on the “investigative panel” that found no “evidence of judicial misconduct, wrong-doing, or incapacity within the Commission’s jurisdiction” in connection with Fox, according to Perroni’s suit.
