In 2010 the San Diego Union Tribune is having trouble getting a response to
its public records requests from San Diego County Office of Education.  

The author of this website has also made requests for invoices for payments
to SDCOE's favored law firm, Stutz, Artiano, Shinoff & Holtz, with varying
success.  See links to invoices in right column.

Union-Tribune tries to
obtain Stutz invoices.
SDCOE in 2008 failed to produce a total of 17 months' worth of invoices
from the years 2002, 2003, and 2004: October and December 2002, March,
June, October and November 2003, and 11 months in 2004 (only January
was produced).  

SDCOE refused to produce any invoices at all from 2005.
