Blue Hog Report
, the blog run by Little Rock lawyer Matt Campbell, appears to have scored another victory in the public interest.
He wrote earlier this week
that a plan by Little Rock police
to charge $3 for CDs
containing responses to Freedom of Information
requests would cost $3. Campbell noted that the law prohibits charging more than the cost of materials used to respond to a request.
Today, quoting an e-mail conversation, he says City Attorney Tom Carpenter agrees with his interpretation of the law and that it appears the cost of a CD to the LRPD is 58 cents.
