Perry County Update: Nauman Smith Law Firm Requests Extension for Right to Know Law Request

On August 28, 2014, I submitted a Right to Know Law (RTKL) Request to Perry County for all receipts and disbursements by Nauman Smith Law Firm in relation to its representation of the Perry County Auditors. Pursuant to Section 506(d)(1) of the RTKL, third parties possessors must disclose public record, pursuant to the RTKL. On August 29, 2014, it was forwarded to Nauman Smith Law Firm. On September 8, 2014, pursuant to Section 902, Nauman Smith Law Firm requested thirty (30) additional days to respond.

I am somewhat perplexed as to why Nauman Smith Law Firm is unable to immediately provide an accounting of its receipts and disbursements (financial records) related to its representation of the Perry County Auditors. It should not take 30 days to prepare an accounting in a matter that has been billed the entire time. Maybe someone should hire an auditor to assist…It’ll be interesting to see what the accounting reflects….
