Intent to Charge to Document Sealed Records Disputed

Montpelier, VT – The group Judicial Watch last year sued to gain access to Howard Dean's sealed gubernatorial records. Last month, a judge told the state of Vermont to index the thousands of documents. The judge also said the state can charge for staff time to do it. Vermont officials want to bill Judicial Watch in advance, but the Washington D.C. based group calls the amount that's been calculated "preposterous". More from North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley.
