ACLU is suing the R.I. State Police and the D.O.C.

The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the Rhode Island State Police and the state Department of Corrections over public records fees.  The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the Olneyville Neighborhood Association which is seeking records on the state's cooperation with federal immigration authorities.   The state police wanted 15-hundred-dollars for the records and the DOC sought nearly 600-dollars.  The ACLU says requests for public records should not be a "money-making venture."
