On August 9, 2015, I posted a blog article regarding my October 2, 2012 request for an amendment to New Jersey’s court rules that would allow anonymous OPRA requestors to proceed in court anonymously if their requests are denied.

In its 2016 report, the Civil Practice Committee rejected my request because on September 17, 2015 the Appellate Division ruled in A.A. v. Gramiccioni, 442 N.J. Super. 276 (App. Div. 2015) that, absent compelling circumstance, anonymous OPRA lawsuits are not permitted.
