The city of Spokane has been sued by the Spokesman-Review for failure to release details of an internal affairs report regarding the deputy mayor. The city cited ”privacy concerns” and said the report covered “anonymous, unsubstantiated false rumors.” Editor Steven A. Smith said that without release of the report, “how can citizens judge for themselves whether theparties involved have upheld the public’s interests.” (1/2/07)
