On August 29, 2016 Jefferson Circuit Court granted the motion for Partial Summary Judgment of Plaintiff Thomas Fox in an Open Records suit against defendants Kim Richards and the City of West Buechel. The Court ordered the defendants to allow Fox to inspect certain specified public records, including bank account statements, checks and deposit slips among other City documents.
Mayor Rick Richards and City Clerk-Treasurer have failed to comply with the Circuit Court’s order.
Plaintiff Fox has served Defendants’ attorney with the following motion asking that Mayor Richards and Kim Richards be brought into Court to explain why they should not be held in contempt of Court.
KRS 61.991(2)(b) specifically provides:
“Any official of a public agency who fails to produce any record after entry of final judgment directing that such records shall be produced shall be guilty of contempt.”
