City of Sandy Springs Releases Statement on Lawsuit Filed by Appen Media Group

May 26, 2023

Sandy Springs, Georgia (May 26, 2023) |The City of Sandy Springs has released the following statement in response to the lawsuit filed by Appen Media Group:    

"Sandy Springs prides itself on its record of openness and transparency, while at the same time protecting the general public by maintaining the integrity of open investigations. The Open Records Act clearly mandates that initial incident reports are to be disclosed, as well as any supplements to the initial reports. However, the supplemental reports mentioned in the complaint are separate from the initial reports and, instead, relate only to notes and other information specific to open investigations. The release of this information is clearly exempt under the Open Records Act and has the potential to compromise public safety and negatively impact on-going investigations. Sandy Springs will continue to release all appropriate information required under the Open Records Act and, if the lawsuit proceeds, the City will seek to recover costs, damages and attorneys’ fees to respond to these allegations which question the City’s integrity."
