Bentley Media Group v. Fulton County District Attorney’s Office

Case Number: 24-cv-002511, Superior Court of Fulton County


Just the News Investigative Reporter Steven Richards submitted an Open Records Request to Fulton County requesting all records of meetings and all communications between District Attorney Fani Willis, special prosecutor Nathan Wade, or any other staff of the District Attorney’s Office with any White House or federal Department of Justice officials both in Georgia and the District of Columbia. The Office of the Fulton County District Attorney responded to Mr. Richards, stating that there are no records that are responsive to this request. However, it was admitted in a hearing before the Fulton County Superior Court that the DA’s office did, in fact, have communications with the White House. The attorney for Fulton County specifically stated that there were two written letters of communication.

These letters are responsive to the Open Records Request submitted by Just the News and Mr. Richards, yet Fulton County lied in an attempt to hide the evidence of the White House’s involvement in the partisan indictment of former President Donald J. Trump.


On behalf of Bentley Media Group, which operates Just the News, AFL sued the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office to enforce the Georgia Open Records Act and require the office to disclose all responsive records.


This case is currently being litigated.
