FOI Wins, Hartford Loses

Two items made news today concerning the city Corporation Counsel John Rose and the state’s Freedom of Information Commission.

First, the commission apparently voted today that Rose violated the state’s sunshine laws when he made someone wait too long to get public documents. And second, a hearing officer has made a preliminary ruling in another case that Rose withheld documents from a member of the public (and a mayoral critic) without cause. That hearing officer proposed fining Rose a hefty $1,000.

Rose, and the city, don’t have the best record with the FOI Commission. or the court to which it takes its appeals.
