“Let me just say it’s highly suspicious,” said Media Law Expert Bob Nelon. “That seems like an extraordinarily high amount for the direct cost they would experience in producing the documents.”

“Epic cannot charge the cost of the employee to pull the documents in the first place and make them available and if all the reporter is doing is looking at them at an epic location there should be no cost at all,” Nelon said.
