N&O Secrecy in Kitty Hawk loses again

The News and Observer notes in an editorial that the Town of Kitty Hawk lost its appeal of a lawsuit by the Outer Banks Sentinel requesting the release of legal bills related to the condemnation of ocean front lots.

I have never understood KH's reluctance in this case. It would have been much easier and cheaper to just cut out any privileged legal advice and hand over the papers. It can't have been that hard. I understand having principals but they were wrong on this case and they looked very bad while defending it.

Government needs to be as open a possible, kudos to the Sentinel for seeing this one through.
