The Qullin effect


Has the Arkansas Supreme Court's ruination of the Freedom of Information Act in the case of former county comptroller Ron Quillin's e-mails already had an effect? A NLR case gives cause to wonder. The promise of a speedy avenue to public documents -- once a guarantee of Arkansas law -- now seems a remote concept indeed. Here, the issue is over documents related to a fired community development agency director. It seems likely to be tied up in court for months and so those seeking public records need be prepared with bags of cash.
