A lawsuit has been filed against Cody Hiland, the 20th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney and former boss of tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet, Jr. for his blatant refusal to comply with the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act.
Also named as a co-defendant is Hiland's office administrator, Sirena Moix.

The lawsuit covers five FOI requests made from July 12, 2015 through January 7, 2016 that Hiland refused to provide a response.
The FOI requests mostly dealt with information relating to or connected with Boyce Hamlet, Jr., a former employee of Hiland.
All of the information requested is releasable under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act and Hiland has placed himself in a dangerous position by refusing to comply with the law.
Failure to respond to a FOI request can result in criminal charges and jail time.
