Nickles Wins Round in Dispute with Auditor

The Nickles vs. Nichols saga continues.

On Thursday, the District Court of Appeals granted the administration of Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) a stay of a Superior Court judge's order to hand over documents to City Auditor Deborah K. Nichols.

Nichols took her fight to court when Attorney General Peter J. Nickles refused to allow her to inspect records involving development deals. He said her subpoena for the records was "too broad."

Senior Judge Eugene Hamilton ordered the city on Oct. 7 to give Nichols access to the records. But the stay will delay that order until Nickles's motion to restrict Nichols's access is reviewed by the courts.

I have the deepest respect for Deborah Nichols. She refused to allow Peter Nickles to stop her from doing her job. I admire the fact that she went to court. She hasn't lost and I have to hope that even the judges are sick of Nickles and his crap. he just refused to obey the law, decisions and now he participates in rallies. He's crazy!
