The statute does not set forth a specific limitations period for filing suit to enforce compliance. However, a court will not grant equitable relief to one whose long delay renders the ascertainment of truth difficult. O.C.G.A. § 23-1-25. Courts of equity may interpose an equitable bar, whenever from the lapse of time and laches of the complainant, it would be inequitable to allow a party to enforce his legal rights. O.C.G.A. § 9-3-3. SeeRentz v. City of Moultrie, 231 Ga. 579, 203 S.E.2d 216 (1974) (persons who were improperly denied access to election petition prior to election but who waited until after the election to sue for access "will not be heard to complain"). On the other hand, a mandamus action based on the Act is premature where the party retains an adequate legal remedy, such as the right to seek records through discovery procedures. See Tobin v. Cobb Cty. Board of Ed., 278 Ga 663, 604 S.E.2d 161 (2004); Millar v. Fayette County Sheriff's Dept., 241 Ga. App. 659, 527 S.E.2d 270 (1999).
