Having watched the city and the city attorney vigorously defend their refusal to comply with the FOIA request, one begins to wonder. Why?
Is there something in that correspondence that would be extremely damning to both the city and the attorney?
Why else would they go through this much trouble, time and expense?
Especially now, when the Michigan Supreme Court ruled against them.
And on the whole, to anyone with common sense, it would seems frivolous to have refused the FOIA request in the first place, unless you have something to hide.
