Motion to quash Stoltzfus court order
Tampa attorney Richard Harrison, representing Anna Maria Commissioner Harry Stoltzfus, has filed a motion with the Manatee County Circuit Court asking for dismissal of a court order issued to his client April 21 by Judge Stephen Dakan.
The order issued by Dakan required Stoltzfus not to dispose, sell or transfer his personal computer and not to delete any more e-mails.
At the hearing, Harrison remarked that his client intended to follow what the court had ordered regardless of the hearing.
The hearing was the result of a public records request made by Michael Barfield of Sarasota for all of Stoltzfus’ e-mails related to public business. Barfield was concerned, based on the e-mail records provided, that some undisclosed e-mails might yet remain on Stoltzfus’ computer.
Barfield is represented by attorney Valerie Fernandez, who also represents Pine Avenue Restoration LLC.
A hearing on Harrison’s motion has been scheduled for July 14.
