Man wants all Snohomish sheriff records – going back to 1776

The Associated Press

EVERETT — The Snohomish County sheriff’s office has stopped trying to fill a public records request from a man who asked for every record all the way back to July 4, 1776 — even though that was 113 years before Washington became a state.

The deputy prosecutor who advises departments on record requests, Sara Di Vittorio, says the county offered the man an initial installment and charged $1.50 for the cost of the DVD. When he refused to pay, the county considered his request abandoned.

The Daily Herald reports the man threatened legal action.
