Sustained Outrage

Major FOIA case at W.Va. Supreme Court today

We’ve reported before on the important Freedom of Information Act case in which The Shepherdstown Observer is trying to get copies of the petitions filed to get a zoning matter on the ballot in Jefferson County.

Well, today’s the day that the state Supreme Court will take up the matter. Justices are set to hear oral arguments. The case is listed 5th on the court’s argument docket.

You can read the briefs here, and tune in later for the Webcast here.  The Court begins hearing cases at 10 a.m., so it’s not clear exactly when the FOIA case will come up … so stay tuned.

And check out our previous posts on this case here, here, here and here.
