On appeal, the Michigan Court of Appeals recognized that the FOIA authorized the facility to deny requests for records without having to pay copying fees if the requestor doesn’t provide an affidavit of indigence. On that basis, the Court affirmed the trial court’s dismissal of the case. See: Kearney v. Mich. Dept. of Mental Health, 168 Mich.App. 406; 425 N.W.2d 161 (1988).
