Springfield Says It Could Take Nine Months To Fulfill FOIA Request

The city of Springfield says it could take months to fill a reporter’s request for a massive report on the conduct of two Springfield police detectives. 


The 23-hundred page report on Jim Graham and Paul Carpenter has been kept under wraps for years, but reporter Bruce Rushton of the Illinois Times has filed a FOIA request for it.  City attorney Todd Greenburg says each page has to be meticulously reviewed to black out any confidential information… and estimates that his staff can only complete 250 pages per month over the next nine months or more. 


Rushton’s attorney, Don Craven, says he has not agreed to that timeline, but continues to talk with city attorneys.
