Activism 101 Podcast #20: Local Government Sues Me to Keep Documents Secret

This is the 20th installment of a podcast following local activism efforts I am spearheading to address the surveillance state in Lexington, Ky. Through this series, you will get an inside look at boots-on-the-ground activism as it happens. The goal is to create a step-by-step how-to on tackling issues at the local level. You can access the other episodes HERE.

I knew going into this activism effort there would be surprises and even some setbacks. I didn’t expect this.

On Oct. 2, I was sitting in my living room watching Netflix when I heard a knock on the door. When I answered, a Fayette County constable served me papers.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been sued!

The city of Lexington really doesn’t want me to have information on the police department’s mobile surveillance cameras. When I won an open records appeal to the attorney general’s office, the city took it to the next level and sued me.

As the saying goes, if you’re catching flak, you’re definitely over the target.

In this installment of the Activism 101 podcast, I talk about my reaction to the lawsuit.
