Kitsap County Won't Appeal Public Records Ruling

This Kitsap Sun article describes Kitsap County's decision not to appeal a recent ruling that it must disclose county employees' town of residence. The Kitsap Sun made the request and filed the suit to obtain the records.

NOTE: Greg Overstreet of Allied Law Group represented the Kitsap Sun in the case.

The story quotes Overstreet: "'The law worked as it's supposed to,' he said. 'The records that should have been disclosed were ordered disclosed and the requestor recovered at least most of the cost of enforcing the public's right to public records.'"
