On October 3, 2008, I filed a civil complaint against seventeen Atlantic County municipalities to correct their noncompliance with the Open Public Records Act and the Sen. Byron M. Baer Open Public Meetings Act.  

The amended civil complaint, which lists all the defendant municipalities and specifies the allegations against each, is available here.

Of the seventeen defendant municipalities, I entered into Consent Judgments with sixteen of them and won a summary judgment against one. 

The municipality against which I won summary judgment is the City of Port Republic.  The following links lead to the order entered in that case and the transcript of the court proceedings.

The sixteen municipalities that entered into Consent Judgments are listed below.  Next to each is a link for a “hard” copy and, where available, a “live” (i.e. text searchable) copy of the Consent Judgment.
