After repeated denials of public records requests, the Delta County Citizen Report is taking Delta County to court.

A complaint filed by the nonprofit media organization accuses Delta County Administrator Robbie LeValley of violating the Colorado Open Records Act four times. The DCCR in its February suit asks for a show-cause hearing and a finding that Delta County was wrong to deny access to financial records the media nonprofit had sought. The DCCR is also seeking attorney’s fees.
