Baltimore County breaking public-records laws, former top administrator alleges in lawsuit

August 4, 2021

Baltimore County is breaking state open-records laws by withholding numerous documents that should be released to the public, a former high-ranking veteran of county government alleges in a new lawsuit. Fred Homan claims in the lawsuit that the county has violated the Maryland Public Information Act by refusing to turn over thousands of emails and by charging unreasonable fees for public records. Homan is the former county administrative officer and retired in 2018 after four decades in county government.
