For eight years, Seattle businessman Armen Yousoufian battled King County, first to get records on impact studies for the $325 million stadium built for the Seattle Seahawks, then on how much the county should pay in legal fees and penalties for stringing his request along for more than four years. A court has now awarded him $300,00, but Yousoufian is still not content. It’s not enough to discourage other public officials from withholding information, he says, and, besides, he still doesn’t have all the records sought. (8/29/05)
