State releases FOIA documents after lawsuit

Updated: Wednesday, July 16, 2014

LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Newschannel 3 I-Team has a follow-up to an investigation that we aired last month involving a lawsuit against the state Attorney General regarding the Freedom of Information Act.

The case has been dismissed after the State of Michigan complied with the law and provided the plaintiff the documents that had been requested.

Baker, from Kent County, filed the lawsuit last month, alleging that Attorney General Bill Schuette's staff members broke the law by not providing public documents in a timely manner.

Generally, Michigan law allows for a five day wait period, and then an extension, if the public entity asks for it to provide documents.

In this case, it took more than two months for the request to be completed.

A spokeswoman for Schuette said despite the delay, she thought the Attorney General's office complied dwith the law and that the department consistently makes records available through FOIA.
