Public.Resource.org Files Countersuit as “Georgia’s Legal Battle with Public Records Advocate Deepens”

It was Malamud’s response to a July lawsuit by state legislative officials claiming that Malamud is engaged in a broader plot to force the government to spend taxpayer dollars to make annotated versions free for the public.resource.org website, where Malamud has posted a scan of the annotated code.
