Appellate Division rules that OPRA requests are OPRAable.

In a published decision issued today (01/27/17), a three-judge panel of the New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division ruled that Open Public Records Act (OPRA) requests filed with a government agency are subject to disclosure unless a) personal privacy concerns outweigh the requestor's interest in disclosure or b) disclosure would give an advantage to someone, e.g. another news agency, who is competing with the OPRA requestor.

The prevailing attorney was Walter M. Luers of Clinton.
