This is COAST's experience with public records law as well

The Ohio legislate has done a fine job with Ohio Open Meetings and Public Records laws.  The statutes and crisp, clear and well-written providing the public with broad access to documents that already belong to them -- they are public documents after all!

Still, time after time, the Courts, prompted by powerful local government officials with endless cash to spend litigating and arguing interminably about the finer points of law, and claimed exceptions, have managed to make mincemeat of the statutes to the point at which theya re no longer recognizeable.
