Open Records — prevailing party — attorney fees

James Webster appeals an order dismissing his petition for writ of mandamus and denying his Wis. Stat. § 19.37(2) motion for attorney’s fees, damages, and costs. Webster primarily argues the circuit court erroneously failed to grant his motion, despite its finding that Webster prevailed in his mandamus action. We agree with Webster. Accordingly, we reverse and remand for the circuit court to determine the appropriate award of fees, damages, and costs. Additionally, the circuit court shall order the Town of Spruce to provide Webster copies of, or access to, the general ledger. This opinion will not be published.
