Access with Attitude · An Advocate’s Guide to Freedom of Information in Ohio
By David Marburger and Karl Idsvoog

For those who find themselves in a battle for public records, Access with Attitude: An Advocate’s Guide to Freedom of Information in Ohio is an indispensable weapon. First Amendment lawyer David Marburger and investigative journalist Karl Idsvoog have written a simply worded, practical guide on how to take full advantage of Ohio’s so-called Sunshine Laws.

“During my eight years as editor of Cleveland’s Plain Dealer, I speed-dialed Marburger’s phone number whenever an access problem loomed. Access with Attitude isn’t quite that, but it’s the next best thing. It belongs on every bookshelf in Ohio.”

Doug Clifton, former editor, Plain Dealer
