City of Racine billed more than $75K on attorney fees in Weidner case

From The Journal

  • RACINE — According to invoices obtained through a public records request, the City of Racine has been billed more than $75,000 in attorney fees for the open records case against Alderman Sandy Weidner.
    . . .
    Bill Lueders from the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council stated that “it’s no wonder the City of Racine tried to keep these records secret.”

    “They document an enormous waste of taxpayer dollars in pursuit of a goal that is antithetical to taxpayers’ interests,” Lueders wrote in an email. “There was never any reason for trying to shield these record from public view, and even less reason for the city to try to punish Ald. Weidner for blowing the whistle on its abusive behavior. I think the citizens of Racine have every right to be hopping mad.”
