Dennis Nielsen wants to know what his public officials earn and so every year the Nashville, NC man files a public records request for local government payroll records. This year, he got 81 pages from the city for nothing, then Nash County asked 25 cents-a-page for the six pages it turned over. That led to his suing the county, claiming their fee was arbitrary and excessive. “They use this as a way to discourage you.” He said his suit was about justice, not money. (4/6/05)
