Virginia judge reverses Freedom Of Information Act ruling in one of Davison’s cases

A Virginia judge has reversed a ruling he made in June, saying he made a mistake when he wrote that Virginia's Freedom of Information Act applied only to public bodies and not individual officials.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Henrico County Circuit Court Judge Hames Yoffy announced the reversal Wednesday.

Loudoun County resident Brian Davison had filed paperwork in court arguing that state Sen. Siobhan Dunnavant violated the FOIA by not responding to a request he made in January within the five-day window required by law, and by not turning over records he asked for from her Facebook page.

In June, Yoffy ruled that Davison should have gone to court against the entire state Senate -- not Dunnavant individually -- over the FOIA request.

Yoffy ruled Wednesday that Dunnavant didn't violate the FOIA.

Davison has found himself in local headlines recently for separate cases against the Loudoun School Board, Board of Supervisors and commonwealth's attorney.


Again, this guy is an American hero!  Thank you, SGP.
