Maricopa County sued by law firm over access to records

"A law firm embroiled in a lawsuit and other disputes with Maricopa County filed a special action against the county, claiming officials refused to properly respond to numerous requests for information sought under the state's public records law.

An attorney representing the firm Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak and Stewart P.C. filed the special action July 11 in Maricopa County Superior Court, specifically naming county Clerk of the Board Fran McCarroll and county spokeswoman Cari Gerchick.

The suit claims the McCarroll and Gerchick either delayed or did not fully comply with requests for public information about financial matters and communications among county officials and others. The firm claims that the county is attempting to impair the firm's representation in a separate but related lawsuit."
