FOI 2012.06.08 – SERIOUS CASE REVIEW LEGAL COSTS
As an active and empowered citizen and unpaid community volunteer with an interest in the costs and activities of RMBC Elected Members and Officers I read the following article with profound concern – http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/local/leaked-report-reveals-south-yorkshire-sex-grooming-concerns-1-4625039
I note with deep concern that “Rotherham Council dropped its application for a High Court injunction to prevent the disclosure of all the findings” and I wish to know –
1. The total cost of the High Court injunction and any and all of the cost of legal advice and/or opinion given to RMBC from either within or without the organisation, in relation to the Serious Case Review mentioned in the article.
2. Please provide a specific itemised cost and date breakdown in relation to the legal costs requested in (1) above.
Please provide the above information in electronic format and within the timescale specified in the Freedom of Information Act.
