John E. Tull III was recently appointed to the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Review Working Group by Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin. The bipartisan group includes members of the legal and press communities that will review FOIA and provide the attorney general’s office with recommendations on how to improve the law. Other members of the group include State Senator Breanne Davis; Ryan Owsley, Deputy Attorney General, Opinions Division; John Payne, Deputy Attorney General, Civil Litigation Division; State Representative David Ray; State Senator Clarke Tucker; and Ashley Kemp Wimberly, Executive Director of the Arkansas Press Association. “Guarding the state’s Freedom of Information Act has been a large part of my legal career,” Tull said. “I’m honored to serve with the other members of this working group to find ways to improve FOIA but maintain its strength. I’m thankful to Attorney General Griffin for bringing together this group to open this discussion.”
John Tull practices in the firm’s Little Rock office and concentrates his practice on newspaper law, products liability, and complex commercial litigation.
