Press release issued September 2, 2016
The Action Committee for Transit hailed yesterday's decision of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. The court ruled that the Town of Chevy Chase wrongly demanded high fees from ACT for information about the town's efforts to fight the Purple Line. The ruling was based on the First Amendment to the U.S. constitution.
"This ruling is a victory for every Marylander's right to know what the government is doing," said ACT President Ronit Aviva Dancis.
