Supporters of a Petition Drive v. City

Trial Verdict - Bench
October 2011

Sedgwick obtained a bench verdict on behalf of our clients, supporters of a petition drive, in state district court in Texas. Our clients sought earlier versions of a study regarding a Texas city’s red light cameras. Sedgwick brought suit under the Texas Public Information Act after the city refused to release the information. The court found on summary judgment that most of the documents did not fall within exceptions asserted by the city and ordered that the documents be released. The court set a trial on fees and awarded our clients $95,000 in attorneys’ fees.
