King County Office of Citizen Complaints Ombudsman Request
The subcommittee discussed the King County Office of Citizen Complaints Ombudsman request for a waiver of JIS Link fees. The group agreed that there is no problem with giving them access but they do not have the authority to waive the JIS Link fee in this situation. If the requestor is doing the business of the local courts the local courts might be able to help them.
