City faces records lawsuit after counselor's opinionNovember 5, 2019
By The Associated Press
NEW ALBANY — Three southern Indiana residents are suing the city of New Albany for allegedly failing to fulfill their public records requests.
The Floyd County lawsuit comes after Indiana's Public Access Counselor, Luke Britt, found that New Albany had violated Indiana's public records law.
The three plaintiffs say they requested public records in August, including electronic correspondence related to River Run Family Water Park. They sought Britt's opinion after officials in the Ohio River city failed to acknowledge their records requests.
The News and Tribune reports the trio say their suit was filed in response to "a consistent pattern of failing to acknowledge, let alone respond, to a citizen's inquiry into the affairs of local government."
New Albany Mayor Jeff Gahan says city officials "greatly look forward" to their day in court.
