City of Vancouver Fined in Public Records Act Case

The (Vancouver) Columbian reports that the City of Vancouver was fined $1,790 in a public records case but that the judge did not find any bad faith on the part of the City.

The story does not address the larger source of a money pay out for the City, the mandatory award of attorneys' fees to the requestor who prevailed.

Thanks to avid og-blog reader "Kokanee Bill" for this story.
