NJ Open Government Notes

Supremes decline to hear appeal of OPRA suit against private prison company.

On February 21, 2014, the New Jersey Supreme Court denied my petition for certification to overturn an Appellate Division ruling holding that a private company that contracts with New Jersey to provide prison is not subject to the Open Public Records Act (OPRA).  The denial of the petition is on-line here and background information on this case is on-line here.
