Officials in Nash County, Tenn. have given in on the cost of copying public records rather than continue to fight a citizen’s law suit. Dennis Nielsen sued, arguing the county’s 25- cents-a-page fee was not the “minimal cost” mandated by state law. The county first dropped the cost to 15 cents but Nielsen wasn’t satisfied. Now it has dropped the cost to a dime and Nielsen has withdrawn his suit. (7/25/05)
