Description

When Watchdog City began these stories as an outgrowth of beat reporting on county government, they had no idea it would lead to filing a lawsuit that successfully challenged high public records fees and produced a favorable ruling after a hard-fought trial in June 2014. With unlimited taxpayer funds at his disposal to spend on legal fees, the county's elected auditor and accountant — the Clerk of Courts — has since appealed the circuit judge's ruling in my favor. The case is now on its way to Florida's Second District Court of Appeal.
