The judge ruled the City of Bloomington has to pay my court costs – $271. She did not make them pay all the incidental costs I incurred.
Botton Line: The City of Bloomington was found guilty of violating the Freedom of Information Act.

If you are downtown tomorrow morning, come by the Law and Justice Center at 9:00. Court will be on the 4th floor.
It should have been a simple day, but I filed contempt charges against the City last week for failure to comply with the judges’ order to turn over documents. Maybe if the court was packed the judge would hold the City accountable for failure to follow her orders.
Normally, it’s just the judge, a clerk, me, and a lawyer for the City.
The City had 14 days from January 28th, I’m still waiting.
We will see tomorrow if laws matter to anybody but us.
