I just reached a settlement in my public records lawsuit against the Minnesota Dept. of Employment and Economic Development and its Commissioner Steve Grove. They’ll provide me all the data I requested and pay $17,000. When government agency heads use their social media for government purposes, who they block is public data.

@tony Does that cover your costs? Was being correct on the facts enough for you to win?


@evanwolf Yes and yes – I mean, me being correct usually doesn't stop the government from fighting me, but we had a very respectful dialogue in reaching settlement.
