New OPRA Lawsuit Seeks Copy of Criminal Complaint
On July 20, 2018, on behalf of our client Libertarians for Transparent Government (“LFTG”), a New Jersey non-profit, we filed an OPRA lawsuit against the City of Bridgeton, its Records Custodian, and one of its police officers. We are seeking a copy of a criminal complaint filed against that police officer. While the complaint was filed in a different jurisdiction, the City of Bridgeton acknowledged having a copy, but refused to disclose the record to our client. We seek a copy of the complaint and counsel fees.
John Paff, the executive director of LFTG, has blogged about the case here. John has made the lawsuit documents available here.
Update: we gained access to a copy of the complaint and achieved payment of counsel fees.
