He lies and tells me he canít answer my request for public information. He says because I am planning on suing Tempe he canít supply me with the information. What BS. The Arizona Public records law does not exclude people who are suing the government from making requests for public information.
The sad thing is Hugh Hallman is a lawyer and knows this. Or should know it.

Because you intend to assert a legal claim against the City, the only
thing I can do for you is to let you know that I have forwarded your
complaint to our City Attorney.

Subject: Civil Right Violations by Tempe Police Officer - Request for
On Wed march 8 around 9:35 am or 9:25 am I was at McDonalds in Tempe on
Broadway after ordering a coke at McDonalds I laid down on the grass to
rest outside because I was still very sick and recovering from food
poisoning I had gotten the day before.
I was stopped by Tempe cop J Doron or J Doran who proceded to violate
my civil rights per U.S.C. 42 Section 1983.
He asked me for my date of birth. Of course I refused.
I don't have my notes with me here but if I behaved as I always do when
I am stopped by cops I probably said "I am taking the 5th Amendment and
if you wish to question me I would like to have my attorney Marc Victor
with Victor & Hall of present.
J Doron or J Doran like most cops more or less told me that I didn't
have any stinking civil right and that if I didn't tell him my birth
date he was going to arrest me, which of course IS violating my civil
rights. I take the 5th and then the first thing he says is that if I
take the 5th he will arrest me.
We had a little discussion about this and I more or less told him I
would sue his f*cking ass in federal court if he didn't stop violating
my civil rights and the jerk meekly backed off like a lamb.
Well now it is time to sue the crooked cop J Doron or J Doran in
Court for Civil Right violations.
My request for public information is I want:
1) What is the full name of Tempe cop J Doron or J Doran? So I can sue
him in Federal Court for civil rights violations per U.S.C. 42 Section
2) I would like a copy of the police reports made on the incident.
3) I would like copies of any photos he took of me.
4) I would like copies of any audio recording he made of me. And any
copies of video recordings he made of me.
5) I would like a copy of all radio transmissions made by him to your
dispacthers. I would like copies of all digital messages sent to him
from him about the incident.
6) If McDonalds complained to him I would like a copy of the phone
from McDonalds to the Tempe police.
If McDonalds didn't call the Tempe Police and complain about me why did
he stop me?
