Hi Beryl-
Please find attached public records that are responsive to your FOIA request below. Documents attached include a claim filed in Fairfax County Circuit Court and the Town's response.
Other than this claim, the only other legal actions of which we are aware have been filed by pro se client Jerome Julius Brown; all of which have been dismissed and nothing paid. We have no settlement data or reports, and our Town attorney's legal memos are privileged.
Please let me know should you have any additional questions.
