News outlet ask Supreme Court for all of the state’s documents on the financing scandal
The Vermont Supreme Court heard arguments this morning related to VTDigger’s public records request in the EB-5/Jay Peak scandal. After a suit was filed in 2020, the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development turned over some records, but did not indicate which records it did not provide.
The name of the case is Vt. Journalism Trust v. Agency of Commerce & Community Development. Vt. Journalism Trust is the parent organization of VTDigger, the online news outlet that has conducted investigative journalism about the EB-5/Jay Peak scandal.
The state is “[I]n clear violation of the public records statute,” wrote the ACLU of Vermont in a news release yesterday.
