Re:  OPRA Suit Information Requested

Dear Mayor:

We have received several telephone calls that municipalities have been sued or threatened with suit over charges to provide the Gannett newspapers with payroll data in an excel format where those municipalities have to pay their outside payroll services to produce the data in that particular format.

We have also been told that Gannett has filed only one law suit, against Raritan Borough.

Please let the League know promptly if you have been sued or threatened with suit over this issue as we are attempting to compile the information so that the municipalities targeted can work together on this issue.

Please e-mail copies of any Complaint to Matthew Weng, League Staff Attorney at along with the name, phone and e-mail address of your municipal attorney.

If you have any question call (609) 695-3481 ext. 122.

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
