I know of the sunshine laws. That is why it is so

Customer Question
I know of the sunshine...
I know of the sunshine laws. That is why it is so frustrating that they are thumbing their noses at them. Probably what I need is a recent case that I can use as a pattern to take to court and ask for the writ of mandamus. Basically I need a format. Can you give me a case?

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
