City Auditor Deborah K. Nichols said Monday that she is looking forward to receiving records from Anacostia Waterfront Corporation and the National Capital Revitalization Corporation, two now-defunct agencies that once served as the city's development arms.
"We've won round two," she said.
Superior Court Judge Eugene Hamilton once again ordered the administration of Mayor Adrian M. Fenty to hand over the records. Attorney General Peter J. Nickles had requested a stay while he appealed Hamilton's ruling.
Nichols took her fight to court after she issued a subpoena to the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development for the records and Attorney General Peter J. Nichols rejected her subpoena as being too broad.
Though Hamilton ruled in Nichols' favor on Oct. 6, Nickles filed a motion for a stay pending appeals with Hamilton and the Court of Appeals a week later.
Nichols said she expects the Court of Appeals to also rule in her favor.
