Journal sues DOT

...according to this story from the Associated Press. At issue are public records the paper says it requested but didn't get from the Department of Transportation.

The lawsuit says "The department has violated the IPRA (Inspection of Public Records Act) in order to derail and obstruct an investigation into potential corrupt practices and incompetent management of public funds by high-ranking public officials in the employ of NMDOT," according to the story.

DOT officials say they have turned over requested info and that "failures to initially release the documents 'were inadvertent and were not intentional,'" the story says.
