A tremendous resource for fighting for public access. Dave Marburger is the expert.
This should be required reading for all Ohio journalists, attorneys and community activists. I am an attorney of 35+ years and found this book to be insightful, well-organized and well-written. It was an awesome book!
This book is a guide for the public to get what already belongs to them...PUBLIC records! Everyone should have a copy!
An indispensable guide to navigating the weird, difficult shoals of Ohio's open records laws. As more exceptions get lathered onto what started as good laws, and as Supreme Court decisions narrow definitions even more, the book helps readers understand the workings of the laws and offers common-sense strategies for winning in court in a difficult environment.
