Deputy District Attorney James Martin told the MacIver
Institute that the DA's office could not provide the information requested
because under open records law, their office is not required "create a new
record for your benefit."
Bice is telling readers that he’s on the case. In one email
"In fact, I am working on a piece on the costs of the
investigation The DA's office won't give me figures. But Judge Nettesheim
turned over documents with his costs Thursday. Another reporter and I have the
salaries for each ADA who worked on the case. We just have to make a solid
estimate on the amount of time they each spent on the case during the 33
months. Look for something in the next week. "
We are, of course, on the edge of our seats. And we will be quite interested to see if Bice's "estimate" gets the kind of headline play the Walker legal bill story got.
