SSN: Pacific Legal Foundation Goes After Martin County Sunshine Law Violations

By: NANCY SMITH | Posted: January 22, 2014

For a county that professes so much devotion to sunshine and transparency, Martin County sure knows how to keep its citizens in the pitch black.

Now, finally, after months of ignoring the law, the Martin County Commission's scofflawing is out in the open.  Commissioners got caught ducking into "dangerous if not illegal" closed-door meetings and in another matter they are suspected of attempting to destroy email correspondence on private accounts used to conduct public business.

On Friday, the Sacramento, Calif.-based public-interest law firm Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF) presented all five Martin County commissioners, the county administrator and the county attorney, with a stinging public records request. See the complete letter by opening the attachment at the end of this story.

I think this is a good thing, because who better to take on lawyers than lawyers?
