A class action suit was recently filed against the county clerk for Mercer County, as well as the county itself. The lawsuit charged that the clerk charged excessive fees to make photocopies at the clerk's office. The lawsuit cites that economically feasible companies, such as Kinko's, only charge ten cents per copy, but the public must pay fifty cents per copy at the clerk's office. The lawsuit also claims that the public has a vested interest in being charged the appropriate rate for a copy because members of the public must use the clerk's office to obtain copies of land titles. The class action claims that Mercer County is violating the New Jersey Open Public Records Act by charging more than the actual cost for a photocopy.
