Public records disclosure lawsuit against Shoreline will settle this month

Friday, January 23, 2015

After eight years, the City of Shoreline will settle a lawsuit brought against the City by residents Beth and Doug O'Neil. In the process, state law was changed to include metadata in public records requests.

The O'Neil's attorney, Michele Earl-Hubbard, also a Shoreline resident, has an op-ed piece in The Seattle Times: Guest: Government needs to follow the law declaring government records to be public.

The Seattle Times piece states the final settlement costs were over $800,000. The last City Council meeting said that it would cost around $525,000 to finish this case up -- how did the Shoreline City Council and staff bungle their way into an additional $300K in costs?
