Deferred maintenance invites fear of lawsuits

A volleyball-size piece of cornice popped out March 4
County Executive Scott Walker's chief of staff declined to provide additional documents on the 2008 inspection [which found "significant deterioration and/or distress" in the courthouse's decorative limestone seven storeys above pedestrians]. He said county lawyers advised against releasing them* in case anyone sues over the falling limestone chunk.
It says here.

The same Republican candidate for governor Scott Walker who spent his time making a ridiculous great fuss over the Zoo Interchange, which was back to normal traffic capacity after only a couple of days.

* Orr used to mean Bobby Orr but now it means open records request.
