North Carolina’s Senate unanimously approved approved an amendment to the state’s open records law to provide for the automatic award legal fees to those who successfully sue for public records. The bill also creates a mediation unit in the attorney general’s office to try to resolve disputes short of court action. But the bill appears dead for this session because of opposition from House Speaker Joe Hackney who has said there is not enough time for it to be considered in that chamber. (7/18/08)
