Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Anthony Hodges, Tiptonville, Tennessee, Pro Se, appellant.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Andrée S. Blumstein, Solicitor General; and Linda D. Kirklen, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, District Attorney General, 20th Judicial District.

Judge(s): DINKINS

Inmate brought petition under Tennessee Public Records Act seeking review of the District Attorney General’s handling of his request that he be furnished copies of records relating to his prosecution. The trial court held that the Attorney General did not deny the request but, rather, that the petitioner failed to advance the costs of copying the records and, accordingly, was not entitled to relief. Finding no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
