This seminar will discuss two critical areas of OPRA: the statute's privacy provision, and OPRA's requirements governing law enforcement records. Topics to be discussed with regard to privacy issues include: the application of OPRA's privacy exemption to various government records and information contained in government records; recent case law developments concerning OPRA and privacy interests; and the procedures that public bodies should follow when in receipt of an OPRA request that presents a privacy issue. The seminar will also provide an in depth review of OPRA and law enforcement records. This includes an overview of the statute's provisions concerning investigatory and security records, and also a discussion of recent court cases on the public's access to law enforcement records, such as police reports and videos from dashcams, bodycams and surveillance cameras. In addition, there will be a discussion of other recent notable OPRA opinions issued by the courts.
