Magyar and Wheaton Represent MLive in Successful FOIA Lawsuit

September 12, 2017

Jill M. Wheaton, Ann Arbor-based member in Dykema’s Litigation Department and Leader of the firm’s Appellate practice, and Mark Magyar, Grand Rapids-based member in Dykema’s Business and Commercial Litigation practice, secured a winning verdict for client MLive in its Freedom of Information Act claim against the City of Grand Rapids.

The victory was announced in the MLive article, “Appellate Court Orders Release of City Police Recordings in MLive case.” The Kent Circuit Court ruled that the City could not deny MLive access to recordings of police department conversations discussing a prosecutor’s car crash.
