Notes of Decisions

Although fees charged by public body to provide edited copies of public records were authorized by city ordinance, public body failed to carry its burden under this pro­vi­sion to show that fees charged were reasonably related to its actual costs, when it provided no evidence to determine its actual costs. Davis v. Walker, 108 Or App 128, 814 P2d 547 (1991)

Public body could not require pay­ment of copying fee where records were not made available for examina­tion without copying. U.S. v. Van Horn, 156 FRD 231 (D. Or. 1994)

Public body’s decision whether to grant or deny fee waiver or reduc­tion must be objectively reasonable under totality of circumstances. In Defense of Animals v. OHSU, 199 Or App 160, 112 P3d 336 (2005)
