Georgia’s Attorney General says DeKalb County’s largest city has violated the state’s Open Records Act.
The Brookhaven Post is reporting that on Monday, the Attorney General responded to its request that Brookhaven city officials release public records relating to an alleged sexual harassment incident involving the city’s former mayor.
“The Attorney General’s letter … confirms Brookhaven officials violated the Georgia Open Records Act by failing to produce documents pursuant to our request and urges the City to release any other documents in its possession that are related to this issue,” the Post reported.
Last month, the media outlet filed an Open Records Act complaint after requesting the release of public records relating to the cover up of an incident where former Mayor J. Max Davis was accused of sexual harassment after he allegedly sprayed a female city employee on the back-side with Lysol.
“New city attorney Chris Balch read the Attorney General’s letter during Tuesday’s Council Meeting,” the Post said. “Balch told the Council there are no sanctions at this time – assuming Kurrie and Davis being gone as the reason.”
