ATLANTA (AP) — The Georgia attorney general's office does not intend to criminally charge the city of Atlanta in an investigation of alleged open records violations at City Hall.
Senior Assistant Attorney General David McLaughlin wrote a May 4 letter that Attorney General Chris Carr has no intention of charging the city with violating Georgia's open records laws or other crimes.
ATLANTA (AP) — The Georgia attorney general's office has asked for an investigation into a report that the press office of Atlanta's former mayor obstructed requests made under the state's open records law.
Katie Byrd, spokeswoman for the office of Attorney General Chris Carr, confirmed in an email Tuesday that the office had referred the matter to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
The Georgia attorney general's office will no longer represent the state's top elections official in an elections integrity lawsuit filed three days before a crucial computer server was quietly wiped clean.
The lawsuit aims to force Georgia to retire its antiquated and heavily questioned touchscreen election technology, which does not provide an auditable paper trail.
